Street Graffiti, International street art festival Meeting my cam….

Remember that Yashica Electro 35 GSN I recently found in a flea market?
Well I just had to test it. I had shot a few photos within the week , the Lucky SHD100 36 exposures was midway, SOLUTION?
Cut the exposed frames and dump them in Rodinal 1:100. And 60minutes later.

Success IMHO. I like to use LR5 and i wanted to give a dreamy look to them.

But then someting hit me. I did a google search for graffiti at Drapetsona area and i found a nice Article about their story. They are a part of an international graffiti festival that took place June 2014.
I find the article interesting and the photos of the graffities gradual completion nice.Also see them in the article in the colourful edition and then compare them with my proccessing.

Poor man’s B&W Development,Semi-Stand. Lazy Style

I cant STAND the fact that B&W development in my city might cost you “an arm and a leg”. So I SEMISTAND!!

 If you check my Flickr account you will see that I have most of my B&W film photography done myself using the semistand development procedure. It all started when i was unable to find a developing service in my city (Athens and Pireaus) within logical cost range. Since I hate being ripped off, i embarked in the journey of Rodinal 1:100 semistand development.

If it works for me I’m sure it will work for you. I hope that will help you to save time and money for getting more film and get out there.
Happy Shooting.
