Purple wool cardigan, white turtleneck, tan pants suit, sitting in front of a red brown desk with asparagus on the desk, a small radio, hero cards carbon ink, red plastic cover glass tea cup (mug adorned with roses ), as well as lavender shade small aluminum table lamp, table lamp or living in France to students Po Elaine, and she also has the same paragraph, clip on the bookshelf. Desk against the wall, on the wall of my sketch two assignments, Shakespeare and Greek statues partial picture. The lack of color in the photo a little sharpness, covered with a layer of gray tone, the focus seems to be shooting a little false, seems printing toner are not allowed, but this should be my first color photograph it. Filmed in color half-length photo studio, in fact, that color is post-up color processing, color film color prints, that is really a color photograph.
W is a classmate brought a camera, buy color film, holding coffee cup four photo is also within this film. Where it took a print? W Huaihai said the building across from the bottom of her family home studio, printing color photos. That day, Wen Wen together to get photos, Kadak bright yellow Kodak, Fuji Fuji blue-green tone, extremely eye-catching in the shop doorway. At that time, not all studio can red color film of it. Get the picture, I feel a little gray hue, it seems quite normal, black and white color can all of a sudden up, although the color was bright enough, but I feel especially color, and a few makeup photos of repeatedly looks around.
Such color mood is probably born free to take color photographs of young people feel incredible, a little “relics” mean. That time is just so secretly jump for joy, if this can be described as “extradimensional” happy experience of it.
That time in the early 1980s, occasionally take time color photos, but how can I take it often. Kodak color film negative 100 135 20.5 yuan, 19.8 yuan Fuji, Konica 17.5 yuan, Lucky 12 yuan. Roll 135 generally can shoot 36, which was 36 Kouzhao press the shutter, the camera’s go to the studio, to shoot people or shoot people, the environment does not seem Jiequ important consideration, household objects close-up course to more less. Looking back will find details of life’s missed a lot of features, after all, can not replace text with images of texture, but more than ten dollars in January of meals, buy a roll of film, not including the printing fee afterwards, it is a little taste of luxury light a. Until the first ten years after color photos of the landscape Streams to go the distance, usually with 10 rolls of film even more time, I will be more shots to the landscapes, as well as local customs and folklore (the locals are certain to shoot), like a family member can not shoot do not shoot, one shot at this time of concern in the landscape, and second, in fact, still cherish the film. Otherwise, landscapes and selfie their peace and quiet. Many years later, he found himself instantly between landscape and traveling companion exceptionally valuable. Since that time ceased to himself again, that’s life and emotional time and space melted into a comprehensive video, missed disappeared. It touches on the landscape, you might also look at. Where the focal length, what to shoot, do not shoot anything, not just aesthetic, as well as economic.
The first year of work, bought a Phoenix 135 camera, secretly groping focal length, metering, focus, and so on. Still later, SLR Canon, Ricoh machine fixed focus, fixed focus telephoto and wide-angle color camera, tripod camera bag with all up, pretending to be a photography enthusiast. Still later, Sony digital micro-single, cell phone camera. Camera lens tripod Jing Ru abandoned wives, put in moisture-proof box (cabinet) in the long home for years, often see it, as if just for the memories.
AI era, I still remain in the refrigerator several volumes of black and white film, with not knowing, or not willing to deal with, read to leave. Maybe someday old lady talking fat boy crazy, but until the time involved in the camera, I do not know whether still developing?
1986 spring and summer, Xi Park bright and rich green trees, Yan Yuan Jian also clear as a small water wash, plane trees is a year when most green. Wen Wen There are three level students on campus free to go take pictures, the camera is Wen Wen, 135 color film. Wen Wen wearing a purple plaid suit, lapel jacket with flared skirt, chic and elegant; level students grayish green suit collar short thin coats, she said to her mother, used to wear just right. My cotton twill double-breasted collar gray zipper jacket is won a scholarship at Hua Ting Road, buy, pickles and green pants feet, they are also the same road with stalls of day and buying a jacket. Spent $ 100 scholarship prize most, treat yourself a little meaning in the. Took a group photo at the side of the gate that gallery wisteria frame; in Yanyuan, my classmates peace swaps his shirt and went to the small stone bridge, Wen Wen said that holding the camera in the stream, you both came slowly. That time long hair floating up slightly, along with the unique level students of issuing innocence. Sa makeup people full and pleased in slightly misty light and shadow, there is no beauty, no lips, smoky makeup, everything is original look, all will be like walked toward hope.
Ping, Shan, springs, Finland, Hua together a video also on me, with six homes are Yanyuan mushrooms pavilion. It seems that we face is not enough slack, I’m even a little serious, as if thinking about what the problem is, in fact, should be thought nothing of it, but young artists feel life is too nervous. Hua genteel side faces red shirt, Dove Springs and gentle smile, his lips sipping Shan quite a sense of self-confidence, flat white shirt and black trousers face peaceful. Six basic makeup, between the atmosphere seems a little less dynamic flying joy pleasure, but there is no filter, covered with gray tone color photographs, this time is the state of life, graduate from ripples and expectations.
I was wearing pants feet piece of pickle green, gray ribbon silk shirt, shirt stuffed in the waistband, loop feet coffee color shoes, a hot hair does not meet the age of the head, face less relaxed, and seemed both preoccupied mind firm. Only many years later look at the pictures, look at this face, will sigh, “but was already casting haze of confusion.”
Time is already the second decade of the 21st century, the first printing color photographs of shop of course long since disappeared, Huaihai building later called Maison, selling imported luxury goods, and sometimes the limelight without both. Then later more and more luxury goods shop, Maison has become more rot. The era of visual images, readily beat, free repair, free software to adjust the hue, not so fresh look at the development of sharp color photos, it seems that it touches more genuine image. Although the image has invariably modification and selection of reality.
