5 Body… of chilly climate check airships by Arctic Circle on Kodak Portra 160 (35 mm Format / EI 160 / CONTAX G1 + Planar 45 mm f/2) – by Igor Imfun


On the time I shot these frames, I owned a Contax G1 for rather less than two months. It was my first movie digicam and I fell in love with it immediately. You simply wish to maintain it in your fingers and benefit from the brilliance of the individuals who made it. I can’t write a lot concerning the variations between the primary and second variations of this digicam. All I’ll say is that for me they’re each fantastic and I like to recommend that you simply use the one which is less complicated for you.

For the primary time I shot at temperatures beneath 30 levels Celsius. And possibly the primary time I used to be on the highway in such climate. Nearly two years have handed since that second, I utterly forgot how chilly it was at the moment. Perhaps it is as a result of these photos do not describe the chilly and I am pleased with that. This makes them appear extra sincere to me. As a result of they categorical actual info and never how we see issues based mostly on our emotions.

I didn’t shield the digicam and I used to be undecided whether or not it will work in such climate circumstances. However as you’ll be able to see, he by no means disillusioned me. I used to be a little bit anxious that the battery would possibly run down rapidly in extreme frost and I did not have any spare. All images have been shot in Canada nearly past the Arctic Circle. On the time I used to be working constructing airplanes and we did some exams in chilly climate. For a very long time, my employer did not permit me to publish images, however finally I used to be inspired to take action.

It’s possible you’ll have an interest…

We spent a number of days there and managed to do all the pieces in keeping with our plan. I am going to in all probability put up an image later in the identical circumstances with the identical digicam however with a Carl Zeiss 90mm lens and Portra 400. However for now, let’s concentrate on these images.

Every part was shot on the Contax Carl Zeiss Planar T * 45mm f2, sadly, I don’t keep in mind with what aperture I took particular pictures. All I can say is that to start with of utilizing this digicam, I not often closed the lens past f/5.6. In fact, that day the solar was shining and there was numerous snow. Maybe this was my first time taking pictures in such circumstances and didn’t even take into consideration further lighting and most probably closed the aperture to f / 8.
