alternate eCard-version i made for the moving types exhibition

analog photography | vintage style photography

 sorry for the big delay!
last week i was invited to visit Hamburg,
where i shot a bunch of vintage looking photos.

if you want to shoot some really good photos,
which look like they were shot decades ago
just keep these 5 simple things in mind:
-buying an old camera is good, buying an OLDER camera is better!
-try to develop the photos by yourself! the effects are mind-blowing!

 -you need contemporary probs (mostly traditional clothing)
-a believable location (simple or timeless environment)
-make every photo look stage-managed

  (back in time photography was an expensive hobby)
otherwise you can shoot it digitally and edit it hours and hours and hours
to get a similar grungy look. but i would prefer the easier and more pleasant variant.
more photos soon...

 it's the story of an giant, who lives together with normal-sized people
in a normal-sized town, which carries many advantages and disadvantages along.
so say hello to the giant:

i try to animate my first short animation.
it's still in progress.
but to get an idea i made a quick test shot:


i'm still in the start-up period with the characters and the storyline
i used about 700 frames. it's very slow.
