These Beautiful Surreal Photos Were Taken With A Film Camera

Ukraine-based photographer Oleg Oprisco has a beautiful collection of surreal photos, all of which were shot from an old-school film camera.

Proving that you don’t need an expensive DSLR camera to shoot stunning images, his photos were all created without any digital editing.

In an interview with Bored Panda, it was revealed that every image was done by Oprisco himself. He said, “I’ve found it ideal to do everything myself. I come up with a concept, creating the clothing, choose the location and direct the hair and makeup.”

“Before shooting, I plan the overall color scheme,” he added. “According to the chosen palette, I select clothes, props, location, etc, making sure that all of it plays within a single color range.”

He even offers some advice to aspiring young photographers: “Drop your job and shoot…if you feel that’s what you want. Freedom, happiness, money…all will come after you let go and just shoot.”
