Analogue Photography - going historic, kind of...

Hello Hello

Welcome back to your hometown. Hope you enjoyed a great vacation with your beloved ones!

During Summer time I enjoyed more and more taking pictures. Especially my beloved ones and my wonderful living town. Hihi, my cat is already annoyed by my cams ;-).

As I saw in CUT magazine (CUT magazine) a Summer competition with Pinhole-cameras I was amazed! Mmmh, but I was too lazy to build one by myself (find the tutorial here), so I went to the website of Lomographische AG to buy me one ;-). Yes, I am definitively an ad victim ;-). However, I bought myself a DIY-Camera called Konstruktor. I is the first 35mm plastic SLR camera.

It comes as a construction kit to build-it-yourself:

Uuuh, I was so nervous when it arrived! But I couldn't resist….had to try it! 

The next three hours (it took me a bit more than the 1-2 hours they were talking about ;-)) my table looked like this. I don't show you my devastated face as you might need some psychological assistance afterwards ;-). No, it wasn't that bad. 

After the described hours my KONSTRUKTOR has been finished! Traraaaaa:

Doesn't look great, my baby, I mean? Am sooooo proud!!

Tell you, this is a whole new experience. For me, at least! 
Reminds me so much of my first camera ;-). Everything has to be done manually. So cool to learn everything from the beginning. And I have a lot to learn, I can tell you ;-). From 24 taken pics there only 10 which can be used. Mmmh, you see, I'm not yet a professional ;-). But I don't care as I love to learn and I am known, for never giving up. 

FYI: I only show you four pics as the other are showing my beloved ones and we agreed that we keep this private. This is very important for me!

This is the start of another passion of my life, I feel it. Uff, I am soooooo ….. interested in everything….

Lots of love

  2. There are some pinhole cameras ready to build: those are paper sheets with the corrects shapes, it's thick enough to stop the light. It let just the funny part ofthe work.
