Could it just be the sum of all these things that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?
-Is it the feeling of an almost solid chunk of metal in my hands?
-Is it the looks of the huge and incredibly fast (at least for a rangefinder with non-changeable lens like this) lens at 1:1,4?
-Is it the amazing results delivered by the Yashinon-DX 1:1,4
- Is it the shutter speeds that goes from 1 – /1/500 sec.?
- Is it because that the ISO can be adjusted?
-Is it the classic stylish looks that some tasteful camera designer gave this massive beauty back in the sixties?
-Could it be the reliable CdS meter which still works as good as the day it was released on the market?
Or, could it just be the sum of all these things together that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?
I was looking for a decent rangefinder because I wanted to take some concert photos without disturbing anyone with the noise of my SLR’s mirror and something a bit more handy than my TLR.
And so I found this beauty with it’s very fast lens, at a very reasonable price, which made it even more suiting for my needs! After running the first roll af Tri-x through it, under a variety of different light-conditions, I now feel ready to go shoot some musicians!
Even with the little experience I’ve had with this camera, I have absolutely no worries recommending it to anyone who would get the opportunity of purchasing one…
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
Here's the third and final part of my Lomography Day Trip features about Ubud. To be honest, there are a lot of places there that are worth visiting, but I just picked some of them to help you make the best of your trip. So prepare your notes or travel books and take note of the must-see places that I'll mention below. Maybe one day you'll visit Ubud.
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but whoever said that must have never shot with a Konica C35. This 46-year-old beauty can definitely hang with the big boys. Come see why this camera is one of my favorites, and why it should be one of yours, too.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
