I saw my picture in the newspaper. The newspaper isn't kept a long time usually.
Hikotaro, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I develop analogue picture it's my most exciting work in darkroom can't mistake every moment. The developing process need care about the concentration of a chemical solution, thermal management, exposure time and a proper aperture. One print went through those process then will be completed. Film print process is very stuck with human hand and water and light so that's why analogue photography is warmer then digital camera I think.
