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.

We had a few accessories for the Seedy Chicago ball shoot, including a period Voigtlander brought by Thomas. It gave us a number of good shots, of which this one is my favourite. This was processed in Lightroom with XeL 2.0 using my favourite preset by far, the Agfa Scala 200 emulation.
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.
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.
