Hi, My names Rik.
I have 3 Degrees:
Graphic Design/Visual Arts/Photography
Im a graphic designer,
singer, song writer,
of the sorts
For my photography i use a very cheap Nikon COOLPIX L120. I dont have extra money to waste on a DSLR and dont really consider buying one anytime soon. my photography is not about how perfect or crisp the pixels are, I try to add angles and macroing with interesting subject matter and naturalistic color palettes. I try to always incorporate the rules/principles of design into every photograph.
All of my 35mm B-W film was self developed, and all photography was self enlarged onto photo paper in a dark room at my college college. I enjoy the film process of the slowly forgotten art of film photography. I prefer the soft edges and grain of film compared to HD photos. Film is a long process just to see what your shots even look right, and that is if you didn't ruin them during the development process. Making film prints takes a certain skill and patience, and the final product is much more rewarding to obtain than a SD card full of shots in a matter of moments.
Don't let your art be held back by technological tools, let it only be held back by the abilities of your own creative mind.
