Hey yo, it's been some time since I last wrote what's going on my life. I'm currently back at the 'always-busy' state, after taking some vacation at Thessaloniki, my hometown. Which means, work, work, a movie, work, some lessons in Photoshop, work, sleep, work, food, work... I might have missed an opportunity to work in a much better position than I am right now, but that wasn't in my hands. Luckily, before the week's gone I will find out.
Photography? I'm currently hooked to the SX-70, plus some ocassional shooting with one-use cameras. For the first, I've got a fridge full of 600 film expired since 1999, that may or may not work, depending on a large number of factors. Check the latest two deviations to see for yourself that when it does, the results are quite nice to the eye -- and that's not bragging, it's just a nice 'feel' that this ugly, yellowish stuff gives me. Polaroid is helping me re-discover photography lately. I took so much on the whole RAW/Lightroom/Photoshop techie thing that I had forgotten that it can all be as simple as pressing a button. For the second, I've got a few old one-timers added to my order of the 600 film for free, and they simply rock. You can burn their plastic lenses, you can freeze them or microwave them, keep them at your hand as you're walking and shoot random people doing random things... And of course, when the results are ugly as hell, you can always sit there and relax looking at them, knowing that you didn't lose anything of big importance.
Design? Fuck design. For now. There's no sense in even trying.
The cat's gone wild. I've got scratches all over me. She's got character, that's why I love her. A mood-swinging little bastard
This time, I feature Polaroid works that have been manipulated with one way or another. Just showing a few extra things a creative person can do with them.
