Black and white photography is about contrast with me. Sure I like nice grays in an image but certainly not too much. I need whites and blacks. Recently I lucked into a stash of perforated 35mm Fomamures microfilm and set to shooting it in a Leica IIIc. Let me tell you the story and show you the shots.Continue reading “shooting microfilm in a Leica IIIc”

Home-restored 5×7 inch camera from a century ago. Gave it a modern Super Cambo back and a new front lens board for interchangeable lenses. The green bellows are original to the camera. It is ready for another century of shooting now.
My son Jonah is in that sweater. This was summer 2013. Film was Rollei Retro 100, in a Leica III.
Sometimes you just see a good shot happening right in front of you when you turn around in a supermarket parking lot.
Theater De Kolk in Assen sloot zijn deuren (in afwachting van sloop en nieuwbouw) op 31 januari 2006.
Op 1 februari meldde ik mij om 10 uur bij de ingang van het (voormalig) theater om foto’s van het interieur te maken, nu alle lichten aan waren. Desondanks had ik een paar flitsers meegenomen.

Trying to make up my mind on how to finish the bare wood on my latest camera restauration. The big 5×7 and the blackfaced sliding box camera are already done. The latest 4×5” will share lenses with the 5×7” and it will have a similar frame to fit the lens boards into, but what color scheme would suit it best, and should I trim the sides of the sliding board? I need a drink!

Fitting a modern 4×5” back to a 150 year old camera for 13x18cm that was missing its non-standard sized film holders. I think I have finally found something I can be genuinely good at and enjoy at the same time. Too bad it’ll leave me poverty-stricken if I’d try to make a living off it😂 #asserstadsfotograaf #4x5camera #4x5cameras #camerarepair
