I shoot streets and people of Kyiv or other cities on film, and occasionally with my phone camera.

5 frames with Kodak Gold pushed to 400 – By Ivan Studynskyi

Kodak Gold 200. An icon consumer film from the ’80-’90s. It is beloved by some and hated by others. What you definitely can’t say is that shooting it left someone indifferent. I find myself loving this film (I am not crazy about it, though), especially the warm tones and high contrast. What is even more impressive, is that Kodak Gold has a decent sharpness and fine grain for a consumer-grade film. Like that is not enough, the price for the Kodak Gold is quite cheap. Considering all of the above, the film seems a great choice for everyday use to have fun and store some personal memories.

Olympus OM-2n – My First SLR Film Camera Review – Ivan Studynskyi

My first experience with film started when my friend let me take some photos with her camera, one of which just struck me (to this day I think it is one of the best photos I have taken). After that, I remembered that at my parents’ apartment there is a point and shoot camera – Olympus Superzoom 700XB. It is extremely cheap and not so good, but it still worked. I took it to Barcelona for the holidays and shot two rolls of film there. When I got scans back – I got hooked.
