Happy New Year everybody. Haven’t posted since we left #2020. Let’s hope that both health and politics will globally take a turn for the best in #2021. Meanwhile I’m spending the day crafting an antique barrel lens to a modern era lightweight 4×5 camera. ‘Good compositions also look promising when seen upside down’ #4×5 #4x5film #4x5photography #antiquecamera #shootfilm #ishootfilm #shootfilmnotmegapixels #analogphotography #analoguephotography #analoglife #asserstadsfotograaf

Got an old Philips medium wave radio and need to figure out what antenna to use for some decent reception. There’s still some international radio to be heard over the air waves!

The Pentax 6×7 is about 35 years old, half the age of the radio… Me, I fit in between nicely…

Large format is not so small at all 😂

Little Leica I (post 1955 converted to a II) taking a piggyback ride on my 18x24cm camera which will be fitted with a 5×7 inch back soon.

Although they are nothing alike, I love them both.

Received a box of #5×7 #graflex filmholders for my #largeformatcamera.

Added the #leicaiiic in the picture for size. These filmholders need #restoration and I’m spending the day taking them apart where necessay, to glue them and refit missing screws. Next they will have insides of hinges done with #blackpaint and outsides taped. Last, a coat of clear wax or oil to maken them shine again.

#sunday A cold and bright sunny day.

Wanted to take the ‘new’ Lomography camera out but as it turned out Snappy needed emergency surgery because his film advance tab had snapped off so he’s recovering 24hrs from a glue treatment. Instead, I took the Old Standard #rolleiflex from 1932 out.

Old cameras are golden

Restoring several old cameras back to a useful life.

Got myself a new camera yesterday.

Really had to pay up for this one. EUR 7.50 with an original ‘snappy’ lenscap. I’ve wanted one for so long. The moment I saw it to the cash register took 5 minutes. I’m gonna shoot the crap out of it, better believe me. I mean, crap in, crap out right😂 #lomography #snappycamera #lofi #lofiphoto #lofiphotography #tintype #tintypephotography #120film #120filmphotography #ishootfilmbutthisisntit #ishootfilm #shootfilm #asserstadsfotograaf
