Artist uses film and his imagination to create spellbinding world in real life!!

It’s very rare to look at a professional photograph these days and not assume it’s been digitally altered.

But one artist is bucking the digital trend – refusing to use Photoshop and taking his photographs with analogue cameras.

Ukrainian photographer Oleg Oprisco’s photographs are born out of his imagination and bringing them to life takes more hard work than the average photo shoot.

Oleg commenced his career at 16-years-old, where he would play around in his spare time while working at a photo lab.
Speaking with photography blog I Still Shoot Film, he admitted that the challenge of shooting on film is what excites him.

‘I see film photography as a game in a casino. You can win big or lose it all. I press the shutter release button and then I have to wait to find out the results when the film is processed,’ he said.
‘It’s a very cool feeling, addictive like a drug.’

Captured using Kiev 6C and Kiev 88 medium format cameras, Oleg uses a variety of lenses to get the effect he desires.

With twelve shots captured to each roll of film, he’s also unable to review the captured photographs until the film is developed.

While the photographs are not created using Photoshop, he does admit to using them to digitally modify the images.

Not to create the sets or resize the props, merely to correct the colouring in the final images and remove specks of dust from the frame.

Deciding what he will shoot isn’t even the struggle, as it is for so many artists.

Preparing the shoot doesn’t involve a keyboard and mouse, but a notepad and pen.
