In honor of film photography

After more than 30 years I am returning to film photography. I do not know if it is to stay, but I am back … I have the impression that it will live well with my digital photography that I have been practicing for some 20 years.

The feeling I get when I look at my first analogue photos is something similar to the feelings of listening to my vinyl records compared to listening to music on CDs. I feel my images generated in films more vivid than those I digitally generate. But, it is just a feeling. I like to feel it.

This series of photos: Carnival 2020 in the city of Poços de Caldas, State of Minas Gerais, Southeast Brazil. I used a 40 years ‘+’ Pentax K1000 camera and an Ektar100 film.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
