Going back to college...

after a long vacation was quite fun, I am now a second year graphic design student. 7 of my old classmates are in my new class, and the other guys are nice as well. Most of the teachers are pretty cool. I had a little disappointment on the first photography lesson when our teacher's first question was whether we're familiar with Photoshop. Well, what can I say, it's a digital photography class, so i should have been expecting that. But he said he didn't mind if we shot analogue. Nice. On my way to school in the morning I entered this shop which, in a weirdest way, was selling photo products, stationery and provides laundry services. I entered the shop out of curiosity, and it paid off, I bought the last 5 rolls of apx 400 for ~25$ :)
I'm having this stupid flue, that's why i'm staying home today.My nose is dripping badly and i'm going crazy because of that. I'm spending a roll of tp per day on my nose! Aaaaaaah!

These hip shots were taken with a disposable camera. the quality sucks but I still like them.

Seasonal depressions

So the winter has arrived without any warnings. It has been raining since yesterday.
Althought I tried to resist it and went out wearing flip flops it didn't really make the winter disappear but made me navigating between the puddles.
Winter sucks. Such a depressing season. No decent light.
I'm already depressed. Looking out of the window and seeing the wet street.

The only thing that cheers me up at the moment is that school starts on the 22nd. I can't wait to see everyone again. It also means daily rides on the train which means-photo material! :)

I've also received another 2 disposable cameras, and the funny thing is that these 2 are 10 years old, they were distributed by Coca Cola during the Atlanta Olymic Games. Ha!
I'm expecting crazy colors in those photos if there will be any.

In addition I found
this. Kudos to that campaign!

Back in 1985...

some kids never had real toys to play with, so they were forced to play with film boxes.

shit happens

Finally got the latest 2 rolls developed. It took a damn week. There are no normal labs in the hole where I live. BW films are sent to Tel Aviv to get the process . and it costs alot!
I'm seriously considering to buy the chemicals and start doing it by myself.
*yeah right, who am i kidding*
I shot an expired roll of Ilford xp2 super 400 and an Ilford panf plus 50. Got the panf 50 as a gift, 5 rolls actually, but i'm not going to use it anytime soon.
There's almost no decent shots to post. They're all too dark and I'm a little disappointed, but hey, if you never screwed up anyhthing, you haven't really done much.

So i learned the difference is between f5.6 @ 1/500

and f5.6 @ 1/125

these are from another roll where i realized the difference between f2 @ 1/30 (which is also out of focus *cough cough* )

and f2.8 @ 1/30

On some other notice, found this web magazine. Lovely mix of medias which are easily viewed by just clicking back and forth for lazy people as myself.
