First of all we’d like to say thank you to WordPress’ staff (because there’s people there) for trusting us again and featuring our blog post on Street Photography on the Freshly Pressed yesterday (second time this happens! 🙂 ). It was a very nice surprise!!! Hence, THANK YOU to all the people who visited, commented, subscribed and joined our eternal conversation about Photography. Truly thanks! We hope to see you around!
Today we wanted to share a beautiful gallery dedicated to the gorgeous Rolleiflex camera (and piece of jewelry) that I found the other day on facebook. This classic (and classy) medium format camera has been used by photographers like Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Irving Penn… even Robert Capa took it to war when Leica was the favourite and the “big” Rollei wasn’t the most common war camera.
It made me think about my own, a humble and beautiful, Yashica that I own since a year ago. I must admit I still need to practice some more with it but every time I shoot I experience this magic in photography. And photography for me is classic and classy (my favourite photographers shot film and they portrayed History as we know it) That made me think we don’t talk much about film (probably because of the lack of experience, which I hope to solve soon) but that doesn’t mean we don’t like it. We’d like to hear your clicks and voices, and know what you have to say about it, what’s your experience, your favourite camera, if you use medium format, etc. Do you enjoy the luxury of shooting with such a piece of jewelry?
