Lindsay sent this pictures. He was in a vintage car exhibition when he met this girl, Becca Salzano, all pinup style in a pretty polka dotted dress. She was using a Pentax K1000 with Vivitar lens.
A friend is selling this camera.
Beautifull, isn´t it? I was tempted but I already have a fantastic 6×6 camera (guess what?). If someone is interested, my friend´s name is Braga and his e-mail is email@example.com. His reputation is bulletproof. He is more honest than Pope Francis.
UPDATE: OOPS!! Sorry!! It was sold…
Those were the “events” in Filmepalooza Summer. Buy and sell second-hand film cameras.
There were really fewer people than previous edition so there were much less cameras for trade.
Photo exchange (take a photo, leave a photo).
Slide projection were you could project your slides. I have at least 10 carrousels but I forgot it completely.
Daniel Avila and Alex Villegas setup a studio to shoot 4×5 portraits from volunteers.
Caires did volunteer.
And I did as well. Someone recorded a video of me trying to stay still while Alex was preparing the camera (what takes quise some time…)
Alex didn´t process the photos in loco but he showed some photos in 4×5 film…
… and glass plates.
Lila Souza taught how to home process BW films.
She shoots a Leica III.
Bruno Massao (the guy at the center in this photo) this time talked about lenses, from wideangle to teleobjectives.
Thiago Ramos talked about “Essays” (I don´t know exactly what it was about).
Luiz Fellipe talked about Lightroom for beginners.
Leo Neves talked about “Flash for beginners”.
Larissa Coutinho made an interesting lecture: “How start shooting film”. It may be obvious for us used to shoot film (take a camera, put a film inside, start shooting), but I know it is a bit scary for younger people used only to digital.
She and two other friend run a website about lomography.
She shot me!!
Rodrigo Netto showed in loco how to home digitize films.
Marcos Semola talked about street photography (not to mention his Leica shirt).
Philippe Machado manages Lomography Store in Brazil and he talked about… lomography.
I wrote in this post how much I liked my Praktica MTL-3 and it is the best cost-benefit ratio for 35mm film photography.
It´s a great camera with a superb lens and I used it at lot untill I sale it to a friend. This photo of my girl was made with this camera.
Well… DÉJÀ VU! I just come home with this beautifull combo for less than $100: Praktica MTL-5B with Pentacon 50mm f/1.8, Takumar 200mm f/4 and Sicor 28mm f/2.8.
The camera is in great shape, all working. There was a film in the camera that I´m going to process and see what I got.
The dial at speed knob is missing. Not a big deal.
Pentacon brand still visible at bottom plate.
It came with original strap and case (which is very handy for me once I´m not very carefull with cameras), hood, UV filter, flash, power cord and bag.
Zenit E and Zenit 11 with custom made red leather (very beautiful!!).
Lomo LC-A, Canon EOS-Something and Nikon FM2.
Canon A1 and a nice T-shirt.
(I had a Canon A1 a few years ago that I bought from my uncle.
After he passed away I handed the camera to my cousin).
