What’s in my camera bag.

Or on the shelves…

Top row, left to right:
Hasselblad 500C/M – you have seen plenty from this camera already. Medium format, 6×6. I have two 120 magazines, two polaroid backs, prism, waist level viewfinder, closeup filter, 80mm 2.8.

Ferrania Rondine: Italian camera, takes 127 film. It should be in working condition but I have not had a chance to test it yet. On my to do list for this weekend or next week. Belonged to my father-in-law.

Mamiya NC1000s: the 35mm I used before getting the Canon A-1. It has given me some great shots but occasionally the shutter will remain open for an indefinite amount of time. With 50mm 1.7.

Rolleicord II: medium format, 6×6. Also belonged to my father-in-law and sat in a basement for 20 years. We had it as a prop at home for a few years before I decided to polish it and run a roll of Portra 160. I don’t give it much love, because f/3.5 is not open enough for shooting indoors, but it has given me beautiful shots.

Tiny camera in the center:
Minox 35GL: the smallest full frame 35mm. Viewfinder camera. Unfortunately, the last roll I ran through it, a month ago, came out almost blank. The shutter remains open until film is wound. Sad news. I have shot more than a few rolls with this and for being pocket size, it’s amazing. This one also belonged to father-in-law.

Bottom row, left to right:
Pentax 67: if you have been following for a while, you know this is the most recent addition to my film camera collection. 6×7, obviously. With 105mm 2.4, prism.

Canon A-1: my baby. She is tiny and awesome for a walk-around camera. With 50mm 1.4.

Polaroid Land Camera 450: I love this one but haven’t shot it in forever. Cost of instant film is too high for my taste.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetThat’s all about my cameras, I guess. Soon, a post about my darkroom.

missed me?

in case you are not a follower of mine on instagram (@klodid), you might be wondering where i disappeared for a whole month. well, i was in albania – my home country, and italy – hubby’s home country and previous living place for both of us. i flew with the kids to stay with my parents for 2 weeks, and then we reunited with hubby in milan, where we also celebrated 6 years of marriage on october 13th. don’t get too excited about seeing photos from the trip. two kids, three and one year old, 9 hour time difference, lots of hours of flying, torrid heat in albania followed by a cold wave in milan, made for very cranky and tired kids. i had hoped to shoot more but just had to lay down the camera(s) and keep my sanity. there will be other travels ahead… for now, just a few polaroids from the hasselblad.

quiet days

after the accident we have been keeping a low profile at home. i don’t feel like driving much, unless necessary, and the kids seem to agree. here are bits and pieces of our thursday. my son and i made some paintings while sister napped.

picked some apples from the tree in our backyard. they are so good.

i’m also loving the california poppies, also in our backyard.
