Just some test shots...

by Pino Pino August. 08, 2020 545 views

I was doing a shoot of wine bottles and glasses and decided to switch lenses from 50mm to 100mm... in grabbing the lens to make the switch I decided to grab one of my Kodak Retina IIa rangefinders to just get some general shots to test out some angle ideas before resetting the wine bottle and glass...

These were those test shots... took four - liked three...

I just really liked 'em so I'm sharin' 'em... no particular reason beyond that...

I have a "thing" about old cameras. If someone were to ask, I would prefer them as gifts over most any other thing..+1

Me, too! My collection continues to grow and I get smiles and comments every time I take one out... people who don't even do photography are enamored by them - they are amazing pieces of design and art in and of themselves... and the physicality of their operation is, for me, just a thrill!

Thank you! It's fun to shoot my old cameras - both literally taking photos with them and also taking photos if them...  there is just something about the physical design that is still cool!
