The Birth of The NoColorStudio Experimental No.5 High Contrast Film – By Arnas Špaka
Greetings, I am Arnas Špaka, creator of NoColorStudio – an experimental initiative.
My interest in photography started when I was a teenager and found my grandfather’s old Zenit-E camera in the wardrobe, I began to shoot with color and gradually tried out many of the then-available black and white films. It just kind of became part of my life – documenting life in black and white. My interest in photography really boomed when I started working with expired film while I was studying fine art in Vilnius, Lithuania and from there it grew towards alternative photographic processes. I think photography really filled that void of being interested in a combination of optics and chemistry for me. I’m very glad that I had a really great teacher who shared many great books on old 19 century processes and guided me in all sorts of technical aspects of photography during my student years.
