024/100 Days Project: Self Portrait Photography

I had forgotten something I had in my pocket all along, something that would have made the process of this project a lot more easier.

It’s this one Photography app called FIMO which gives the simulation of various film rolls and an analogue camera. I have taken several photos earlier with this app:

These two photos are shot with the simulation of Kodak Vision3 500T film roll. It is a high-speed, tungsten-balanced movie film characterized by a fine grain structure, broad dynamic range, and the flexible nominal sensitivity of a 500-speed index. Here it gives an aspect ratio of 16:4.5. This aspect ratio works fine to get cinematic shots in landscape mode (it honestly doesn’t work in the portrait mode):

Fimo has this unique user interface of an analogue camera and gives several options of paid and unpaid rolls of films:

I had completely forgotten about this app until today morning. It has this beautiful simulation of IFPhoto PAN 100, which results in beautiful black and white shots with decent amount of grains. Experimenting with this photography app, I made this photo today:
