So we were supposed to look at our old photos and attempted to re-create them. Here are two photos I took with my siblings at church. I loved the space and garden and especially the mango trees growing at the back. For both the photos, I believed it was shot on an automatic film camera. It probably have quite a wide focal length, probably at 24mm or maybe 35mm.

The shadow looks downcast and minimal, so it might have been taken in the late afternoon, closer to evening with overcast sky. That probably allowed the shadow to be soft.

For the first photo the whites look slightly purplish, I have no idea why. Maybe the greens faded? I don’t know. Explanation anybody?

  1. The image was probably shot using natural light in a place with some shade, as the shadows are not that harsh. The slightly soft focus is quite nice and might want to consider trying to keep it in the recreation. Good luck!

  2. Well observed! The printed time and date clearly show that it was taken with an automatic camera. Most of them used a light wide angle such as 35mm. The purple tone shows clearly the instability of the colour pigments in the prints. The stability of the colours depend on the brand, material, period of time, and the different processes. Though, it might also be possible that it was never filtered correctly when it was printed.
