Anton & I

Previous / Next

Still trying to figure out how to make this big homemade camera work. The distance between the glass and the paper has to be exact in order to be able to focus correctly. I have no groundglass, but I might work something out anyhow.
Once I start thinking about it, I want to get it done. I just have to collect all the bits and parts first.

The photo in the photo is Anton. My first print from my Holga. It`s also the first photo I posted on this blog in August 2004 Posted by Picasa

I`m online again!!!
Had to reinstall the software that came with the router, and believe it or not: it`s worked without hassle for three days, now. New record!!!!

I haven`t photographed that much the last couple of days, but I`ve been thinking a lot. I want to build a camera. So I started out with destroying an old polaroid studio portait camera. It had four lenses, and worked just fine. Now it doesn`t. I`ll put an old Mamyia 80mm lens in front of it. I hope to find a way to use the back of an old 6x9 bellows camera that I broke some months ago too.
An other idea I got is to get an old wooden box, drill a hole and put an old 270mm/f.9 large format lens in front of it. I want to have a hinged back where I can place ordinary photographic paper (in total darkness), and take one exposure, bring the camera into my darkroom, and develop the paper instantly.
If it doesn`t work, I`ll make a huge pinhole camera out of it instead.
Sounds easy, doesn`t it ?

As you all know, I`m having a hard time with this computer. From time to time, I`ve been able to check out some of your blogs at work, but my internet connection is totally unstable, and I guess the fun is over when when I turn the machine on again tomorrow.
I got two more studio flashes the other day. Got them for free. One working, one not. I`ll take a closer look at the dead one tonight, and if I don`t post anything the next couple of days, one out of two things happened:
1. I forgot to pull out the plug.
2. My internet connection is having fun again.
