There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
Great submission by Italian Photographer Ettore Moni…
The project explores the archietectual structures of stilts, barges and boats used specifically for housing along the River Po, interesting concept. Find more of the project here and more of Ettore’s work.
Retina IIa for February 2014.
At The Spirited Goat café in Idalia, Townsville. Part of my “camera of the month” project.
The Retina IIa is a very capable little camera; easy to shoot and with a fine Xenon lens that behaves quite well in subdued light by doesn’t like the Townsville sun. Great for portraiture.
More to come…
Camera - Kodak Retina IIa
Lens - Xenon 2/50, fixed
Film - Trii-X @ 200
Process - X-tol stock.
Camera of the month for February - Retina IIa. Actually I took these in January. I shot very little in February.
(later - I just realised the picture of me was taken at Coffee Dominion, in Townsville city.)
Camera of the month update…
I’m always rather hopeless at these camera resolutions - “one camera one lens for a year” is something I could never contemplate, and “a shot a day” or even “a shot a week” serves to discourage me from taking any photos at all.
I started this year with two mini-resolutions: firstly to use primarily one camera each month, and secondly to shoot a sheet of large format film every week. I dropped out of the latter after two weeks, but have kept up the former, in a manner at least.
January I shot with the Fuji GW690 III most of the time, and February with the Kodak Retina IIa. Unfortunately February was one of those months where I hardly shot a thing. I only put one film through the Retina, and only finished it just now, 2nd of March. And I started that film in January!
Oh well - I’ll attempt to develop it this afternoon and we shall see.
Now what shall I shoot during March? Any suggestions? 35mm? Medium or large format? TLR, rangefinder, SLR? Leica, Nikon… any of the other various things I have.
Long time no see
How are you all?
Pretty good. May be in Seoul in July…
