Project Piccolocino

July 25, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Piccolocino is a small cafe located at a little laneway in the south end of the town. I was walking one day looking for some food and came across this cafe. The owner Angelo was a very friendly guy and had made a very strong impression on me. Since then Piccolocino became the coffee place for me. The decor inside the cafe is beautiful and very photographable and I have decided to do a photography project for this shop. Earlier this year, I have bought some special films and it seems like a perfect match for this project. The film I used for this project is CineStill 800. This type of film was originally used for filming movies and not available for 35mm cameras. Thanks to The Brothers Wright, they have sorted out the technical issues and made it compatible with 35mm film camera.  The film is designed for a low light condition with ISO 800 and it's very suitable for this cafe and works well with warm light such as the tungsten light. It took me more than 2 weeks to finish the entire roll of film and the results were quite satisfying. The film performed exceptionally well as what they claimed to produce some stunning colours under tungsten light.  Some of the shots were taken with a mixed light source, the outcome was not as good as the ones under the tungsten light. 

Here are the images that I captured at Piccolocino.

This is one of the photos taken near the entrance of the cafe, as I mentioned before mix light source is not as impressive as having only tungsten. 

AngeloI was able to get this photo as Angelo was not behind the coffee machine.

This is my favourite shot so far. Which one is yours?
