So wassup? I think it’s been a month since the last post, but I don’t even want to apologize. I obviously had some shit to do. For example writing this damn 20 page paper about psychotherapy and how it affects your brain. But since I’m done with it, the following image I recently found on tumblr describes my mood towards life now pretty much.
Like I already said I was shooting film this whole summer, and I even got two b&w films from my friend Davida (thank you) and did not miss the opportunity trying them (and I never say no when people tryna GIVE me film rolls bc shit is expensive as fuck).
This pretty boy is named Marco and is one of the cutest and kindest people I got to know. Really had fun shooting this beaut.
This was all I was tryna say. Thank you for reading and supporting.
Have a good evening.
No this is not a face tat, I just drew these tear drops on his face with a normal eyeliner pen.
He actually doesn’t even smoke but he did it for the pictures.
I don’t even know what happened here lol, I guess I fucked up the film.
So I thought of starting an archive series on my blog. Because I never happened to post them but I did’nt want all these hours of scanning pictures go to waste. So why not bring a bit nostalgic vibes on my blog ?
This is Daniela.
One day I was out with my sister and we saw her and I was like “Damn this girl is pretty and a perfect photo model *insert crying emoji* .” ( I was not literally crying but I felt like this emoji was impersonating me perfectly in this very situation).
And my sister was just like ” Go and ask her. ” I have to admit, I get a bit nervous when randomly talking to strangers but I still did it ( and now I feel no shame in doing this).
So I walked up to her, at the underground station, and just casually asked her if she would like me to take her pictures. She said yes.
This way I got to know a lot of interesting people and I am truly hapy for that now.
These pictures were taken on a KodakGold200 film back in August.
Wassup? So I was in Berlin a few weeks ago (yes, again) and took some pics (as usual). This summer was indeed an all analouge summer. And Yes you are safe to assume that I am broke as hell now and that I spent hours scanning pictures. But yea that’s fun so whatever right? But I still don’t get why shooting film is so expensive, even though a lot of people started shooting film again. #makeshootingfilmgreatagain
So who them beautiful and cool people on those photos huh?
“Hi can I take your picture?” “yea.” ( I sadly do not know his name )
Don’t know his name either but he was just sitting there bumping his mixtape and being totaly happy with himself and his life. I aspire to reach this level of satisfaction. I bought his mixtape, because you should always support great artists.
Just an ordinary man peing in the corner, nothing unusual.
And I don’t know his name either. I was too shy to ask him for his name but not shy enough to ask if I could take a pic (?).
I know his name. It’s Joshua. He sure got some sick skating skills. Check out hisinstagram.
Some Mauerpark flicks.
I don’t know their name, but they offered me some of their sunflower seeds.
Everyone that knows me well knows that I hate Munich and would rather live anywhere else than in this city and that, in fact, I grew up in the North West of Germany and never stop making this clear whenever I meet new people, because I’m still reppin’ and representin’North(R)West. So it’s a special kind of bound I have to this place. The “Block” I’m claiming to be from is Wuppertal, Elberfeld to be more precisely. That’s where I spent nearly my whole childhood and made the best experiences ( and then I moved to Munich lol).
A few weeks ago I decided to visit some friends there and spent some time and, of course, shoot. It’s been five years now since the last time I have visited my hometown so it’s really been bout damn time. It really was great coming back. 10/10 would do it again.
For me it was important to catch the vibe while chilling with cool people and having a good time. Most of the time this is what it’s all about, no further meaning or “message”. Not everything needs explanation. Just do what you want. Or what you feel like.
I’m still alive and back with them new new film shots. So as you can tell this really is my first all analogue post. I finally got to see and scan these pictures I took right before I left to visit my hometown (ofc I took some pics there too). And I still got a lot of analogue pictures from the time I was in Istanbul and Berlin I didn’t scan but since I got plenty of time on my hands right now, I know what I will be doing the next few weeks. Believe me this takes a lot of time but whilst you are scanning and analysing pictures you’ll forget about the time and suddenly it’s 4 AM and you catch yourself waking up from falling asleep infront of the open refrigerator next to your mom asking herself what she might did wrong.
I got to chill with the OG GANG and took some pictures of them casually strolling around in their neighborhood. They are all really cool people to hang out and shoot some good pictures with. Everyone of them is an individual and most of them are friends since like forever becaus they grew up together in this neighborhood. So the location was more meaningful this time I guess. I was really happy to shoot such authentic and cool people that just be themselves and chill in their hood, that create and stay together.
So stay true to your block and support some “real mothefuckin’ OGs”.
How is y’all doing? So this time I won’t excuse myself because I had some school stuff to do the last few weeks (I didn’t do it lol). Anyways there is still a lot to come on this blog. There may be just 13-ish people that actually read this blog but I won’t disappoint my true and loyal readers. I do this for y’all.
Actually I don’t even know why I am doing this whole photography thing. I just want to share the stuff I do, with others and everyone that feels like having a look at my work and is interested in the things I be doing, when I’m not sleeping or binge watching any Netflix shows and sometimes (very rare, almost too rare) Animes.
yeah. I got told my blog is very authentic. This was what I was aiming for.
Anyways back to the actual post this was just a quick introduction to this post.
This shoot was a few weeks ago. With a dude called Lukas . He is a really kind and sweet person. Was really fun shooting with him. I have to admit that I did not plan anything for this shoot, but his whole outfit unintentionally matched the location and he was almost blending in with this grey metallic wall because of his grey GOSHA hoodie.
I also shot some pictures on my analogue cam that day. This shit is starting to get really expensive damn I might need a second job. If a lifestyle/fashion/art magazine is tryna hire holla at your girl with the job info lol.
So I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
I’m out b.
And here the #35mm pictures are following, tell me what you think about it ( or don’t ).
