Do you want to know a large format camera that uses X-ray film? A photographer has created a handmade camera for personal use and the results are fantastic. Be sure to know.
Darren Samuelson is a photographer who has decided to build his own large format camera (DIY). The film used is none other than the one used in X-rays. We assume that the cost of each photo is high, the level of the results is, too. The only drawback to this particular camera is its mobility. Despite this, no doubt Darren can take it to anywhere (including Greece).
Now let’s take a look at some of his works with this camera:
This interesting project has its own website where you can get to know the camera in question. Do not miss the interesting video about Dani testing the camera outdoors.
In addition, Darren Samuelson has a personal page where you can learn more about his work.
