    My cameras: Semflex T950

    At a time when products imported from Germany to France were very expensive, the Semflex was a Rolleiflex copy and competitor. It was a robust and efficient machine, whose finish was a bit rough, but whose durability was very good, as well as the image quality on most of the models.

    it's been awhile since I had not enjoyed so much a set of photos. I wanted to highlight some of them, those that I consider excellent: the portraits.

    questions about film swap

    Even if it is not a kind of photo I really like, I would love to make doubles with someone. The question is: how?

    SingleSpeed

    Singlespeed is some non-standard bike practice, whether on trails or on the road. The idea is to leave a single chainring and a single cog and think only of one thing: pedaling!

  • Women

    written by chtiman on 2011-09-20

    I would have liked to be a professional photographer. This would have allowed me to have an excuse to take pictures of many women. I can already see some people say "another one who thinks only of seeing naked women". Well no. Not necessarily. But you have to admit that there are few subjects to take pictures as wonderful as a woman...

  • The question is: why?

    written by chtiman on 2011-09-20

    Yes, the question is: why? Why do you do with photography and, in our case, why are you addicted (or why did you come back) to analog photography?
