Is it possible to take portraits and headshots using Horizon camera? Here are some fun shooting tips!
When shooting Horizon Perfekt at f2.8, the focusing distance will be from 5.5m to infinity. As my friends don’t like to have their close up headshots or portraits taken, I will use this method to take thier photos.
Set Horizon to slow shutter (This is applicable to both Kompakt & Perfekt), place the camera as close to the subject as possible, almost touching the nose. Once you press the shutter, pull the camera towards you as fast (or as slow) as possible. Before the shutter closes, you can continue to move the camera forward or backward.
In this way, you can take fun shots like those below!

I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
