When the first rays of sunshine knock at my window and wake me up in the mornings, I can hardly wait to go out with some friends to jump around and, of course, to take some cool photos.
Unfortunately, it requires several attempts of jumping until I push the shutter in the right moment when using a normal one lens camera.
But in summertime I love to be active and cannot keep still. The SuperSampler camera was invented for people like me; I’ve never seen such a tiny, sturdy (I can’t remember how often I dropped this camera) and good looking thing before. It fits in every trouser pocket and the strap to wind forwards the film is amazing. Therefore, I love my SuperSampler so much and carry her wherever I go, at least in summer because my darling also has some bad qualities: she is very afraid of darkness and eats only high ISO film when it’s a little bit cloudy outside.
She’s my favorite companion when I have the desire of running, jumping and fooling around! :)
Vicuna is one of my best friends and wherever the wind takes him I will catch a paraglide to meet him. I did so, when he chased turtles in Polynesia and now, when he is digesting cheese in Switzerland. My prerogative was to hit a mountain on my birthday and so we did.
While most photographers often enjoy honing their mastery among classic genres, some just love to go experimental. British photographer Neal Grundy toys around Pantone's Colors of the Year "Rose Quartz" and "Serenity Blue" in paint and ink as he marries them into hypnotic and ethereal images.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. 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.
