Stelios says working on film expands your photography skills.

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Stelios Papiemidoglou and i live in Nikaia, Greece.

When and how did the film journey begin for you?

About a year ago, i came up with the thought that if i worked with film i would expand my knowledge in photography.I thought that quality matters more than quantity and thats what got me started.The specific number of shots that a film provides makes me think of each photo seperately before i shoot it,giving it all the time needed.

What type of film do you usually shoot and what made you choose it?

My current work is based on a period of trial,experimenting on different films.I started my work with 10 year old expired Konica Minolta VX100 films and then i used some low cost ones.This period of time i work with kodak Gold200.

What camera makes you click?

I've got a Minolta X500 and an old russian tank FED5 camera.

What lenses do you use?

  • 50mm-f1.7
  • 28mm-f2.8
  • 135mm-f2.8 but i mostly use the 50mm.
