Canon 7D, 80mm, f/13, 1/250s, ISO 100
I’ve started using my proper studio lights to do a new series of camera porn. First I wanted to shoot the Horizon 202 which isn’t quite as spanking new as it looks. It’s a very cool camera even though I’ve only been able to shoot half a roll before the Curse of Lenin’s Mummy locked the camera on me. Now I’m looking at a steep revision cost, but I don’t care, it’s that cool. These shots are processed in Lightroom with a light filter in Snapseed.
Vintage Camera Porn #2: Moskva 5
Canon 7D, 80mm, f/16, 3.2s, ISO 100
I started working on this Vintage Camera Porn series last year, and tried to shoot and post-process all of the cameras as consistently as I could, but I’m only now rediscovering them and tweaking them in ways that truly satisfy me.
Vintage Camera Porn #3: Dana 120
Canon 7D, 80mm, f/11, 0.8s, ISO 200
To say that the Dana 120 is not a good camera is not criticism, it’s stating the obvious. Its cult status is mostly the result of a niche love for blurry pictures. And it looks funky and weighs nothing…
The shot that ultimately got me into collecting and shooting old camera gear.
I’ve recently begin to purchase old cameras at flea markets to use as photographic subjects. I’ve tried a few, but my fun is really in looking at them as objects of a bygone era. This one was the first shot in that series and (still) is my favourite.
