Nokia DiscOVIries Week 4: FILM

This week’s theme is OLD SCHOOL FILM

EDIT: I was half-hearted for the winner of this week’s contest because there were so many great entries like this and several others — my top 5 choices were really amazing shots, but they didn’t qualify because they missed out entering their OVI email address or they posted photos after the cut off time. 🙁



Many months ago, dad showed me something he inherited from the war days. This is a circa 1940 Ciro-Flex TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) that still works. Honestly, I haven’t used it much, as the comforts of digital photography outweigh the relative impediment of buying and developing film. But no one can deny that shooting in film has its charm — especially today with the craze of 35mm film and lomography coming back.

So this week’s theme focuses on a niche — film photography. If you shoot on film, all you need to do is upload your shots to the folder below. Also, please include the camera model, film and if possible, settings when you upload your shots. Don’t forget the description! The winner will be determined by a secret panel of guest judges, so the more you upload, the better chances there are of winning.

Double Exposure


Above are some of the current entries for this week’s contest.

This contest will start today, October 19, 2009 and will end before midnight on Sunday, October 24 ’09. The rules can be found here. The prize this week is still a P2,000.00 eGC from Ayala which is really just as good as cash!

Sign up now for an Ovi account and make sure you include your OVI email address in the photo description.

i was thoroughly appalled seeing how you announced the winner of week 4 saying you were “half-hearted” because there were so many other great images. how tactless! you might not have loved the winning image but so many others probably wouldve (if you actually showed it and given proper credit to the winner). bah.
