Analogue Photograph Ranchi


Last year I had the opportunity to visit a fair organised in Ranchi, near Jagannath Temple on the occasion of Rath Yatra. The photographs were shot in analogue camera. I had used a Minolta x700 loaded with Foma film (ISO 400). It took me a long time to develop the films. Thanks to one of my friend (Sudip Sarkar) who insisted me to give him a demo, I could overcome the barrier of my laziness and develop the films. I am still learning the art. Lack of darkroom and enough chemicals make the work difficult. And the result is far from perfection (as visible). However, the result gives a satisfaction of superior order that cannot be achieved in digital photography.
Sharing some of the ‘presentable’ photographs.

      Thanks Shrikant. There was some issue in developing. And some more issues due to dust! The photographs are hardly a year old. The film was kept undeveloped for more than 6 months.
