Ever since I can remember, I loved cameras. There was something magical about looking through them at the world around, making the moments freeze forever in time, find angles and perspectives through the intent looking that may have eluded everyone else, but not you, the photographer. One of the appeals of the large format photography is that when you go under the dark cloth the image on the ground glass fills your entire vision, you became isolated from the outer world and yet, very intensely focused on it through the flipped projection. It is one of the most engrossing experiences in the craft of photography and if you have never looked at the large ground glass, I highly recommend to try it at least once 🙂 . How old were you when you picked up your first camera?⠀ .⠀ Camera @chamonixviewcamera Dark cloth @wandererphotogear . #largeformatcamera #largeformat #8x10 #10x8 #8x10camera #chamonixviewcamera #largeformatphotography #filmphotography #analogphotography #analoguephotography #oldcamera #vintagecamera #istillshootfilm
