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!

September_ends

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.

Home | Buitekas

There are people which doesn’t get too attached to their home. They like to go out all the time and just need a place to sleep. Another type of people is those to whom home is very important. Me and Maria are these kind of people. As much as we love to go out, travel, etc. We really love spending time at home – ours or one of our parents.

He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
Oh and beautiful TT which is gone now. 
A girl. 
And a boy. 
He's just a boy and I'm just a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
We are in love, haven't you heard
How we rock each other's world?

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.

I follow you

I, I follow, I follow you
Deep sea baby, I follow you
I, I follow, I follow you
Dark doom honey, I follow you

Following Maria in Amsterdam
Just some plant

I like following Maria. I like taking pictures of her. Maria likes all kinds of plants. I like taking pictures of her watching blossoming plants. 

I think Maria looks nice between plants. She talks to them.

Some other plants
Tram in Amsterdam. At first I thought that it was out of focus but then realised it is even better this way.

I like to follow Maria in trams and trains. She wanders through the window into the nature and people.

On a train to the beach near Amsterdam. Morning coffee.
In Amsterdam’s zoo

I also have to follow her instructions. Even though at that time I might not look like I am enjoying that, but – I like following her. She looks happy while taking photos of me.

Motorcycles and rocks

Camera: Lomo Fisheye 2 (click to see how it looks like)
Film: 35mm, Kodak Gold 200

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.

Traffic hit me

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. 

The Feel of Freedom

I’ve been thinking about writing a story post for a while now. Didn’t feel like doing it until now, though. But recently I took a good series of motorcycle photos and thought that I want to tell you more about how motorcycles make me feel.

First wind

My relationship with motorcycles started a long time. When I was a kid my parents had an old Iž Planeta 5 motorcycle. My dad would take me together when going somewhere with it. I remember how I loved feeling the wind going through my hair. Later, when I was around 12 years old I got my first bike – Riga moped. It had pedals and a small two-stroke engine. I remember how I used to push that bike for it to start. When I had it I understood that I can tinker it a bit and it would run better and faster. Guess that’s the time I started to work on machines.

It did not disappear

The love for motorcycles didn’t go anywhere. From those days I knew that I would always ride a bike. It makes me feel confident. As a matter of fact – just yesterday I had my driving exam and passed it! ? Now I can ride whatever motorcycle I want; no more restrictions! ?

Owning a motorcycle

There is something special about owning and riding a motorcycle. One thing is that you have to work on your motorcycle. You have to take care of it if you want it to be trustworthy. It’s like having a real relatioship – you have to put effort and show respect if you want to receive the same. It might look like your motorcycle should be the one serving you. And that is true. You should not be your motorcycle’s slave. But don’t expect your motorcycle to do all the work!

Riding a motorcycle

Another thing about motorcycles that drives me is when you ride your motorcycle. IT JUST FEELS DAMN GOOD! It makes me feel calm and restores confidence. I feel that I can achieve anything I want when I ride my motorcycle. And the community of motorcycle drivers – you feel as a part of people who likes the feel of freedom; people who is open-minded; people who loves motorcycles. You even greet other motorcyclists when you meet them on road! ?

I guess that’s it for now. Maybe I inspired you a bit to get yourself a motorcycle and join this journey. If not – at least I hope you liked the photos! Have a good one!
