    Great portfolio on his site! And about other films as well, it's worth looking at his photographic work !

    Has the WideLux some focus settings? That's one thing i miss at my Horizon Perfekt. With open aperture the distance to the object has to be more than 5 meters. Even with iso 800 films it would not be possible to produce such great pictures as Jeff does. But of course, the widelux costs about 3 times more than the H. Perfekt.
    great pictures and post, btw!

    This ist what Jeff Bridges says about working with the WideLux:
    "The Wide-Lux is a fickle mistress; its viewfinder isn't accurate, and there's no manual focus, so it has an arbitrariness to it, a capricious quality. I like that. It's something I aspire to in all my work --- a lack of preciousness that makes things more human and honest, a willingness to receive what's there in the moment, and to let go of the result. Getting out of the way seems to be one of the main tasks for me as an artist." (

    I don't have a WideLux. But this really is how things are. This is the lomographic lifestyle.

    Maybe he's able to to that close-ups because of the Widelux having a 26mm lens and the Horizons a 40mm lens. Also the Widelux has a fixed focus at 1.5 meters (5 ft), what the Horizon can only achieve with an aperture of f/11 or smaller.
    Whatever, i love his pictures and wish i had a Widelux! :-)

    My guess is that his using some high-speed film for his indoor shots - 1600 or 3200 ASA B&W. Great work. It isn't just a gimmick. He really knows how to use that camera and has a love for film and photography in general.
