More DIY Studio shots

Silas 10

Here are some photos shot recently with my son Collin and his friend Silas in my makeshift garage studio. I used my oldie but goodie Rolleiflex and my Leica M7, shooting with my preferred Kodak Tri-X  and Portra 400. Seems that I have a penchant for Kodak film.( Please Kodak do not go away!) I went to Goodwill and bought an old white sheet and attached it to my open garage door using it as a large soft box. I lit them with 1 Vivitar 283 behind the sheet and 2 other to the left and right of the guys. I was working on some strobist and makeshift studio work. I liked the challenge.


I asked the guys to get the PS3 controllers and they just started to ham in up, well Collin did especially.

  1. Do they make underwater camera housings for vintage cameras?

    1. I am not sure what specific camera do you have? There may be someone or an outfit that make them.

  2. I am not looking for drugstore prints. Who do you trust with your Provia, Velvia, Ektachrome, etc?.

    1. I have not had slide film processed in a while. Here in Portland, I would check Citizen’s Photo , Pro Photo Supply, and Blue Moon Camera and Machine
