Camera envy is not enough, no sir. These already gorgeous analogue snappers get a full makeover with camera skins made entirely out of wood.
Yes, as much as we like our analogue cameras for their definitely lo-fi and textured photos, we also like them for their aesthetics. Some of you may shudder at the thought of a high-resolution photo of Leica rangefinder or a rare (and not to mention expensive) Soviet era camera that is fit for a museum but don’t give in to those gear-induced tremors just yet.
I just stumbled upon these majestic-looking camera skins from *Woodskin* and they are every bit beautiful if you ask me. You really need not be a wood-type of person to like these customized camera skins. Just the mere thought of a detailed artisan slaving away inside a workshop to craft these fetching camera skins is already a good enough camera love story.
Each camera skin is unique thanks to the grain of the different wood types used. And to add to that unique look, the camera bodies and lenses also stand out even with dinged surfaces and scratches. They look better that way – it shows that these cameras were of great service to some happy snapper. Woodskin adds a timeless beauty to already majestic-looking pieces of photographic equipment. Watch out for the details of grain in the wood to really appreciate the craftsmanship behind the camera skins.
