Danka Bobulska and Peter Seman are two young analogue enthusiasts and travellers with passion for adventure represent their escape(s) from reality. The duo met each other at High school and raise their relationship since then. Danka and Peter told us five reasons why they're shooting film before. And today, just keep scrolling for an interview to know more about them and their work.
Hi guys, can you tell us more about you. How did you meet each other?
We are 21 years old students come from the north-east of Slovakia. Currently we´re studying (Peter - Environmental Science and Danka - Physics) at the University in Bratislava. We met each other at High school where we were classmates and after 3 years our friendship grew into love.
How did you first get into photography?
We started with photography approximately 3 years ago. At the beginning it was just capturing landscapes and archiving time that we spent together as the part of our travelling. At that time we had just compact digital camera. But about 1 year ago we bought our first film camera. Since then we have taken pictures more often and photography has become our passion.
What cameras do you use? Do you remember what was your first film camera?
Our first film camera was Zenit E. It was a great camera but after 3 films it broke down. Now we have Pentax K1000, Zenit 12xp and Siluet Elektro.
If you could go anywhere in the world to take photographs where would you go?
It´s really hard to say because you could find nice places and take good photographs almost everywhere. We like countries where the nature is wild and landscapes are authentic. We would like to visit Scandinavia, Balkans, Canada or Nepal. But if we could go anywhere in the world it would be definitely New Zealand or South America.
Do you have any projects in future in photography?
Actually we don´t. We would like to travel and take photographs as much as possible. We want to see the world, have adventure and catch the moments which worth to be shown to everybody. And we also want to take pictures that help us to remember the places we have been to.
Do you have any tips for someone who’s just picking up a film camera?
At the beginning we would recommend Pentax K1000. It is also called the student camera. It is realiable, fully manual and not so expensive camera. For those who has more money there are Canon AE - 1 or Nikon FM2. One of these we would like to buy in the future.
Danka and Peter, thank you for the interview!
