Hi

A lot of you probably know, but I found out that I've never introduced myself.
So here is a little presentation of a young danish guy.

I am a 24 year old photographer who mainly shoots analog. My favourite subjects is portraiture, still-life and landscapes. I shoot 35 mm. for most of my work and develop and print my B&W stuff myself. Color I don't print or develop myself.

My main camera is a Canon EOS 30 (aka. Elan 7e) with Canon 50 mm f/1.8, Sigma 28-105 and Sigma 70-300 APO. Secondary cameras are Kodak Retinette IB (for the old-fashioned stuff), Agfa Clack (for fun) and Lomo Cosmic Symbol (for the weird stuff).

Not much more to say right (except that I'm a equipped with a Rodinal fetish).

Greeeeeeeetings Morten!

Hi Morten!

I agree with PapaGene... but I am more intrigued by something called "Lomo Cosmic Symbol"... I would think it could _only_ by used for wierd stuff with a name like that!

See my cameras:

Canon EOS 30

Agfa Clack

Lomo Cosmic Symbol

Furthermore I own these cameras:

  • Olympus OM1
  • Mamiya SLR
  • Canon AV-1 with 4 lenses (it's for sale)
  • Some Box cameras (one of them I have made into a 6x9 pinhole)
  • Olympus Camedia 3020 Zoom (I'm sorry that I own a digital :smile:)

That is that.

Greetings Morten

1 Year @ APUG.ORG

Hi there...

Soon it will be October and I am celebrating my first year here at APUG.
Unfortunately I cannot give everybody a piece of cake, so you have to close your eyes and fantasize about it.
But thanks to all here for the tips, great debates and superb photographs!

Morten!

Adrian,

that would be a Smena 4? A block of bakelite, of weird smell and awkward handling, IIRC with a triplet on front? ;-)

Now, where is _my_ Clack? And where did I put the lens for it?
