The warmer climate and blooming landscapes that it brings makes Spring one of the best seasons to go out and about for photowalks. Of course, camera companies and film manufacturers of the yester-years understood this perfectly, so they tied up their adverts with the much anticipated Spring season. Let's take a look at some of them in this installment of Vintage Camera Ads!
I've said it before and I’ll say it again — they don’t do camera/photography advertisements today than they used to, don’t you agree? Today, many of the camera ads we see are more about the models holding and supposedly endorsing the goods, unlike the more creative ones we’ve been looking back at in the Vintage Camera Ads series.
For this installment, I bring you mostly Kodak advertisements, from as far back as 1910, that were made with the wonders of shooting the beauty of springtime in mind. Take note how all of them stressed on capturing the season’s colors, or, in some of the ads from the 1910s and 1920s, bringing along a camera whenever you’re heading outdoors.
If these ads have gotten you craving for more springtime photos, you might want to take a look at some inspiring lomographs in full bloom taken by our fellow lomographers!

Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java.
