Designer with a passion for all things creative, FAT-Creative in Glasgow

Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World

PRESENTED ON JUN 16, 2016
IN LONDON @ VOL 11

"In a very fast paced world, I think film is a very good tool to learn how to stop for a moment and acknowledge it."

In Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 11Ksenia Zizina shares how shooting film makes her better at seeing and appreciating the world. Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography.

Ksenia not only shares some of her beautiful images but also conveys her passion for all the small and interesting aspects of the world and how taking photos helps her appreciate these things. By the end, you will want to pull out your camera and take some snaps of your community, your environment, and your world!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, July 28th, 2016.

Forever in an Instant!

BY FREDERICK JON CHEN
@ VOL 13 ON JUL 15, 2015

"Anyone facing adversity can experience some form of healing or solace from something as seemingly insignificant as the gift of an instant photo."

In Forever in an Instant from PechaKucha Night Singapore Vol. 13, photographer Frederick Chen shares his experience of working with Photohoku, a photo-giving volunteer initiative that was born in response to the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Through the act of giving photos, rather than taking photos, Frederick explains how photography has the power to restore hope for people in need, giving them something often overlooked in other relief efforts. In a final call-to-action, Frederick challenges us to take up the cause, putting forward the notion that the ways that photo-giving can make a difference in people's lives is only limited by our imaginations.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 24th, 2015.

Don’t Own a Chicken if You’re Allergic to Eggs (and other ways to stop sabotaging your sanity)

BY RACHEL FREDERICK
@ VOL 14 ON AUG 27, 2015

Why do you agree to meaningless tasks that take up valuable time, cause stress, and accomplish little? You’re spreading yourself too thin and you’ll be burned out in 10 years (or less). Focus on yourself first; life balance will follow.

About my photography and film camera

BY SHIHORI MIYASAKA
@ VOL 35 ON NOV 28, 2015

I am Shihori Miyasaka, an amateur photographer.
I take photos as my hobby. The cameras I use are;
Hassleblad 5000 Classic in Medium Format,
Pentax MX with 35mm film,
and NATURA CLASSICA of compact film camera.
Film camera is laborious and costly. Everything like exposure and focusing on is manual. It is a difficult point for me, and a good point of them too.
What incomparable about photo by film camera is tone of color. I always care 3 things when taking photos;
Make this photo with meanings,
Cut out the daily scene which tickles sense of fun,
and Aware of lighting in any case.
The world of photography is deep, and I am on the way to learn.
If you become interested in photography and camera, especially in film camera, I am so glad.

私の写真とフィルムカメラについて
宮坂しほりと申します。アマチュアフォトグラファーとしましたが、趣味で写真を撮っています。
私が主に使っているのは、中盤カメラのハッセルブラッド500クラシック、35mmのペンタックスMX、コンパクトカメラのナチュラクラシカというフィルムカメラです。
フィルムは手間とお金がかかります。そして、露出やピントも全てマニュアルで、はじめは苦労しました。でも、そこがいい所です。そして何よりフィルムならではの色合いがたまりません。

私は写真を撮るときに、意図を持った写真にする、日常の心くすぐる瞬間を切り取る、とにかく光を意識する、この3つを考えています。写真は奥深いもので、私もまだ勉強中です。このプレゼンで少しでも写真やカメラ、特にフィルムカメラに興味を持ってもらえればと思います。

Limitless Expressions of Time

BY CHRISTOPHER BUTLIN
@ VOL 26 ON MAR 02, 2016

Take a second to look at a scene, appreciate what you see. Now look at the same scene, snapshotted in time, a different time. Christopher Butlin and Arthur Machado invite us to experience how timelapse photography can make us look at our environment differently, and see things we ordinarily wouldn;t have noticed.
