Cold and Trip

We bought new camera to our collection and it’s Olympus Trip 35 – camera that been created and introduced in 1967. The auto-exposure mechanism is effectively solar-powered! You just need to choose aperture, distance and ISO of your film.

Lens/aperture: 40mm f/2.8-f/22 Zuiko
Shutter Speed:  1/200th or 1/40th of a second and we get a perfect exposure. When the camera’s incapable of making an acceptable exposure, a little red flag shows up in the viewfinder and the shutter locks out.
ASA/ISO:  25, 40, 50, 64, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, 250, 320, and 400. The camera then makes the necessary adjustments for the shutter speed.

DianaF+ and light painting

It is a fun technique to get this result. Actually, I love doing this with Lomo Fisheye and DianaF+ with flash help!
It is a double expo when one shot is a hot-flash and a object – person for example (with something like 1/100 shutter speed and f/8 aperture) and other shot is light painting (with B shutter speed).

Large portraits

We have big old large format camera made in 1961. It was made in Belorussia long time ago and my dad , 4 years ago, somehow managed to take it and give it to me.

We used it together with Marijus and Domantas who also made a movie! We did just 5 shots and experimented with light and exposure settings a lot so don’t judge!

xmas tree-when you will be?

these double-exposure/2expo shots are taken with Rollei35T last year when we were visiting Christmas tree in Vilnius. Look how great 2expo works with those Xmas tree lights! 

Marijus is just about going to eat something from the market around.
Ohhh happy family!

water-camera/2017 summer

I got this funny water film camera from my boy. It is 35mm film camera with flash which, sadly, doesn’t work.

Here are some shots ! The film was already rolled so I don’t know brand or ISO but shots are quite grainy.

kids & willow

with Renata we found this willow in front of the prison. we danced, talked, played and braided hair with it. and once she said that she even hears how willow whispers and calls us. 

Marijus is dreamy but especially when it is about cars. We went to the market to search for one but I found beautiful willow instead. 

Cocktail film

Together with Marijus we made this little experiment with our colour films – before taking it to photolab to develop, we soaked films in chosen liquids. 

I mixed rum (alcohol), blue syrup, orange juice. I let my film drink it for a day or two and then put it in a glass of water for one day. Then my film dried on the radiator for more than a week. In a dark room, I rolled my film to a new and empty film roll because the original one was sticky and sugary.

September ended with Zenit11 camera mixed with Pentacon 1,8/50 lenses. We spent our time at the Marijus place. Here are some shots. I always use Zenit with Helios lenses but this time I took another chance.

Opener’18 festival

July 4-8 in Gdynia we were dancing and singing in Opener festival. For me, it was 4th time and for Mario it was 2nd. We were travelling to the festival by motorcycle and that was hard especially this time because we had so much stuff. I took Polaroid 600 and Rollei35T cameras and used FujiSuperia400 film. Just like the 2nd time in Opener (2016) –  it was impossible without football and pitch was prepared for that. We have got super lucky to get into a party in a van which drove us from Gdynia to Opener area. Last day with the last line-upper Bruno Mars – show with fireworks.

Main stars for Opener’18: Gorillaz for sure.

 

Fisheyes

 Last July week was spent in a forest. We had 4 cameras, food, lake, tent, books and each other. 

Fishes around legs, biting and following you.

These are taken with Lomo Fisheye 2 that we bought recently. We took these Bulb photographs of each other:

Marijus took it but later on we talked that it needed more light. 
I took Marijus but it also could be with more light.

We had Christmas lights and flash+bulb combination here worked good:

Rave in forest.

This is were we had breakfasts, lunches and dinners:

Then we had some swimmers-guests who loved spending time and playing in the water just like we did.

At the end of the July, we started our voyage toward Prague. We have also visited Teplice rocks, spent time in Katowice, walked through Prague and with our way back – rested in a big traffic, slept in creepy camping and had some unexpected motorcycle issues!

It was pretty hard to take this pic because the camera is light and the wind is a speedway is quite big.

When I am not sleeping or reading I see this view all the time!

Katowice and saying goodbye to one guy who made this road with us.

Amsterdam

June ended with great World Cup matches in Amsterdam. We went there to see and finally hear Jack White. Amsterdam was cute, wheeled, warm, tasty and floral.

I took Rollei35T with Kodak Color Plus.

Žmonės sakė, kad mums labai pasisekė – taip Å¡ilta Amstery nebÅ«na. Prabuvę keturias dienas ten ir grįžę Lietuvon ir pasakoję, kaip sekėsi, tik pokalbio gale prisimindavom, kad važiavom ten ne miesto aplankyt, o Jacko pamatyt.

This Kid (A).

We met almost 5 years ago and I had a chance to understand how serious and playful you are. Also sleepy all the time. And hungry.
You are my Kid A, as one of my favourite Radiohead album.

2017 April, Klaipeda and Vilnius.

Camera details
Yashica 635 – double format DLR camera which uses 120 film. Presented in 1958. It has possibility to use 35 mm film as well with adaptor kit. Camera looks so gorgeous.
I bought it when I was in 11th grade in Vilnius and back then it costs me around 200 EUR.
Film – Ilford FP4+ 125.
Developer – I guess it was Ilford Perceptol with grain.

Youth in Lazdynai

Walks around our home near the woods. Took it with Rollei35T with Fuji 400 film.

Mes gyvenam prie miško, labai arti. Pasirodo, šalia yra ir ežeras. Taip pat yra toks kalnas, nuo kurio matosi toliai ir miškai, vedantys už Vilniaus į Trakų pusę.

Opener’15

It was my very first Opener. (2015 July 1-4 in Gdynia). For us it was such a magical time because we waited for it whole year. We were talking about line-ups and artists and preparing for festival since September 1st in 2014 when we bought fan tickets.

I took Zenit11 camera with Kodak Color Plus film. Actually, it is forbidden to take camera to Opener area but they do not consider Zenit as professional one – so they let me in. I also was using Polaroid 600 camera there.

2015 Opener Line-up had Alabama Shakes, A$AP Rocky, Alt-J, Chet Faker, Die Antwoord (!!), Disclosure, Eagles of Death Metal, Faithless, Flume, Johnny Greenwood, Jose Gonzalez, Kasabian (!!), Modest Mouse, St Vincent, Swans, The Prodigy. Such a wonderful line-up for 4 days. 

Funny was always to ask people to take photo with Polaroid of all us because mostly people there were like – what to push, whats next and so on.

This shot was taken when were running to see Chet Faker. Auguste is happy because we managed to take 1 beer from car and nobody took it from us.   

Here is the most festival shot of Dziugas and Marija. I asked them to kiss and Marija found this place. They are very beautiful couple.

This is me and my close friend Tomas who is musician as well and one day he will perform at Opener Stage. I had pastel violet hair near roots.   This is one of the first shows where you see A$AP Rocky. I waited for him so much.   Beach Gdynia Babie Doly where we were resting. Its like 5km from camping. Mykolas which is first from right side looks like he is representing dentist job.

This place was our safe spot. If someone loses you, you know where to find your friend. 

Roque Nublo and owners

Film taken in 2018, February, in Roque Nublo, Gran Canaria. In 1st and 2nd you see young French father who climbed to this peak together with his child and father. 3rd photograph is about German couple. They had just moved in, somewhere in Germany. When you are in mountains you are alone or you are with someone. Pity, but I was on my own, sitting, climbing and wondering how beautiful it would be to play here with my friend, with Mario. We will go to the mountains, soooon!

Ir kalnuose visada bÅ«na taip – vieni pamato ir nori lipti žemyn, iÅ¡sigalvoja kaip nori namo ar tikina esą pavargę. Apačioje visada bÅ«na ko užkasti ir atsigerti. Kiti užkopę mato neprieitas vietas ir kalnų grindinis, kur galėtų prisėsti. Teritorija pasisavina ir ten lieka, žiÅ«ri, skaito, raÅ¡o arba galvoja.

Jeigu gamtoje ir yra kas nors nuostabaus, tai kalnai. Ir tik dėl to, kad jie atrodo kaip griuvėsiai. Didžiulio, mistinio miesto griuvėsiai. (Sigitas)

Opener’17

It was my 3rd Opener festival which takes place in Gdynia, Poland. People are here for many reasons. Mine was beloved Radiohead which I have seen and heard twice in mah laif. Marijus came for Foo Fighters and Auguste was here for M.I.A.

Marijus looked so hip hop.

People standing and waiting for Radiohead concert. We waited for 3 hours to be as close as possible!

So happy people banging after concert. We were just sitting and impressed about the musicians and Yorke and lights and techno.
