This is a medium format camera that a friend gave me. It was once her grandfathers. I've been toying with getting it cleaned, because it seems to be in good working order, and maybe the person who can service it can tell me how to load film and take photos.
I've been wrestling with how to take a photo that illustrates a dare. All I've come up with are things that would illustrate a dare for me...but they might not be a dare for you.
Sometimes it feels like I am daring to take pictures...that I shouldn't really because who am I to think I can do this anyway?
Have you read about Vivian Maier? I think I'm spelling it correctly. Anyway, a guy bought a box of negatives at auction to round out work he was doing on Chicago. When he started looking at the negatives (there are gazillions and undeveloped film, too). It seems she is joining the ranks of the famous street photographers of her time. Google her. I think you'll enjoy the story.
