some more from last month BangSaen's festival

shot with Bessa r3  on Kodak 400 Tri-X pulling 1/3 stop, normally developed. 

I guess what I should have done would be to shoot normal then over develop one stop.

Then the shakiness and blur would be more controlled but then again, it's the story that matters :p 

scanned with my home average scanner then colour correct a little bit to get true black on screen.

A blast from the past in Bang Saen

A friend of mine invited me to visit him in Bang Saen, Chon Buri which is about an hour drive down the east coast of Bangkok.

There was an event in the theme of Blast from the past going on that night which included the old Thai cinema with live voice over from the most famous voice over crew in Thailand, snake dude with three lethal cobras and a lot more. Here are a few photos from the night

Shot with Leica M with 35mm summicron
