Another instalment in my Nostalgia series although, it’s kind of a cross over into my photographic surrealism too. The surrealism in this though, is very simple and subtle, so I guess I’ll book it under nostalgia. ;)

It was created using my painted with light techniques, if you are interested in the details, here is an article I wrote about them. In this case I set the exposure to 15sec.

Equipment used:
- Pentax K10D with a SMC Pentax-M 1:3.5 28mm lens
- cheap flashlight and the camera set to auto WB which it screws up resulting in the nostalgic colours.

    I really like the low key lighting, adds a nostalgic feel.

  • The key to the nostalgia is in the light one could say. ;)
    Thanks for the comment Steiner62.
