Retro photo project “Dachniki”

Retro photo project “Dachniki” – continuation and development of our projects” labor reserves “and”Neighbors”. Its main distinguishing feature is that the project is colored for the first time. We are moving smoothly through the years, and if our past history can be conditionally dated to the beginning of the 40s (labor reserves) and the end of the 40s (Neighbors), the new project-this is the beginning of the 50s, when the magazine “Ogonek” began to print on their pages color photos with a characteristic color separation and style. We were inspired by these pictures. This project involved a much larger number of characters, respectively, and the palette of images has become wider and brighter. All costumes and props were rented at the Mosfilm Studio, where everything can be found in huge workshops. The camera fed – 2 and the radio, for example, were in working order. Of course, it would be up to the end conceptually if the project was shot on film by original cameras of those times. To such heights of reconstruction, we have not yet reached. The project was shot on a digital camera, but the subsequent processing combines both digital and analog – manual on printed on paper photos. The project was filmed in the holiday village “Berezki” Solnechnogorsk district near Moscow.

About author

Hi, my name is Maxim Safronov. I graduated from journalism and advertising. Worked as a copywriter at McCann Erickson advertising Agency. Recent years, professional photographer, mostly stock.
The art of photography is not only a well-chosen camera, professional light surrounding the entourage, but also accumulates all the knowledge gained earlier. However, to become a photographer, you need to practice. Neither mountains of books read, nor a large number of seminars listened will not replace a simple act of photography, and this certainly can not agree.

In my school years, I received an art education, which gave me great potential for the development of spatial perception, because one of the biggest mistakes that a photographer can make is to hope that his photo will look like the real world. If we limit our imagination to the real world, we will forever try to copy its beauty, but we will never be able to do anything more.” This concept I was able to fully apply, working in a large and well-known advertising Agency, where your multi-faceted, unlimited vision of the real world embodied in the most daring and extraordinary ideas. After all, if you do not try to see more than the visible, you will never see anything.
I travel a lot, discover new, unsurpassed in its beauty, amazing places. I have at my disposal a huge portfolio of numerous photographs on a variety of topics: portraits, weddings, love story, subject shooting, Nude, reportage photography, landscapes, etc.My knowledge and years of experience as a photographer in a variety of directions, give unlimited potential for the realization of any tasks. I do not try to remember the rules of composition before shooting, because it’s like thinking about the law of gravity, going for a walk. After all, the difference between the beautiful and the bad is a matter of a few millimeters, in fact a very small difference, but significant.
I think that there is no big difference between photographers, but small differences are very important. All my work is a desire to achieve aesthetics, to catch the very millimeters that make a master class from the usual picture.
