I've seen the Ferrania Eura on Ebay and directly fell in love. Her look is beautiful. I just never expected that I would like their photos so much. I own cameras with a beautiful look but I don't like the photos they produce.
The camera was produced by the Italian company Ferrania in 1959 in Milan. It’s a 6 × 6 medium format camera and consists of plastic and metal. She only has two apertures, f8 and f12, and the shutter speed is about 1/30 s.
You can set the distance from 2m to infinity.
My results with the Kodak Portra 400 VC:
Unfortunately it has fallen down and at one corner is a little piece of plastic broken off, so I have to fix it first before I can use it again.
When you see it on Ebay or on a flea market – BUY IT!
Only a steady hand you should have because of the shutter speed of 1/30 s. , but for most of the photos it has worked quite well, because the camera feels good in the hand.
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
