    I've lately taken up photography after wanting to do it for 4 years. Found an old Zenit S in my dad's garage, loaded it up with a slide film and after some cross processing this is what came out. I'm sorry for the quality, the prints were fine, but when I got the CD, I died a little inside. Here's what I could salvage. I even started a blog where I post a picture per day - Am I Indie yet?

    What lens is on your Zenit? I have a Helios 44-2 58mm f2 coming in the mail. It gets rave reviews on other forums.

    The original Industar 50, 1:3,5 f5cm lens. And I've heard praise about the Helios lens', it's a great choice.

    It's the power of a slide film and cross-processing.

    The photos look as if they were shot in the 80s and 90s. Not saying it as a negative thing. Just how I feel :)

    Well in your defense, the people and the scenery looks like it was the 80s or 90s :D .
