This week I visited a professional photographer that sometimes uses film camera. Mamiya RB67.
And Sinar 4×5. Some jobs need large format cameras.
Every Sunday there is an antiques fair at Bixiga neighborhood (gosh! I have to learn how to entry a google map). Among lots of junk this guy sells some very nice large format cameras.
None are ready to go. All of them need some CLA or parts replacement. But nothing special. Just a bit of work and voilá! You have a LF camera.
I have some friends that shoot LF and I´v been thinking in start in LF photography too. Any of these cameras would be fine for me.
What called my attention in this picture is the wooden tripod. This one seems very rigid and good for a LF camera.
Last Wednesday I went at Foto Cine Clube Bandeirante (FCCB) founded in 1939.
Untill a few years ago they have a huge lab and lots of enlargers for members, but not anymore. Fortunatelly they kept film photography classes.
This is the entry room. This day they have organized a photo tour so there was around one hundred photographers.
I have no idea what the heck this bike was doing there. But the large format camera was a decorative item.
There was also an exhibition and one photo was from Mr. German Lorca.
Here his picture holding a Rolleiflex.
Yesterday, December 30, me and some friends went to take some night shots. This Horseman takes 4×5 or 120 films and here you can see his pictures.
This is the Pentax 67 already shown in this blog.
