I like to use a 16mm camera called Kyiv Vega. It has some issues with the lens and the small frame, so it gave me the ability to capture mood and atmosphere rather than objects. I think this is the main task of photography. I also use the Push/Pull process because my film is about 50 years old. I scan the film and add some noise. Yes, 16mm film is probably one big grain, but when you add a bit of noise, the photos become clearer and look like from XIX century or pictures from very old books.
