my favorite cameras. The Yashica Mat 124 uses 120 film and the Yashica 44 LM uses the hard to find 127 film.

Cool cameras! I like the use of sepia to highlight the details :)

Indycaver (Norm) has replied to Valfal
Thanks Valerie! I added a little paper texture to the image, but the sepia is just the tungsten lighting of my bedroom. It always gives a warm glow without flash. I tried the image in B/W, but ultimately liked the original the best.

your paper texture and the background on the framed pic. work very well together. I like the sepia tones as well, I can never achieve this inside, I get this sickly, pinky, orange hue!

Thanks Wendi! I suppose it helps a little that the room has beige tones to start with, but it is mostly the light-bulbs.

nice composition, and the toning goes with the cameras, my first 'proper' camera was a 35mm Yashica.

Great composition and processing Norm. Love the texturing too, well I'm hoping it's texturing, either that or you need to employ a better decorator! ;)

Thanks Paul! It would be hard to fire myself, but not to worry ... it's a Picmonkey texture!

Too bad re the film. however they are still a powerful pair.
3 years ago.
Indycaver (Norm) has replied to charlie b
Thanks Charlie! You can still get the 127 film, but it's not as easy, or as cheap as it use to be. You can cut 120 film down and use it in the camera. They still make some color film in Canada and some B/W in Japan.

Wow, interesting cameras, lovely setting. So, do you develop your own film?
3 years ago.
Indycaver (Norm) has replied to Gillian Everett
Thanks Gillian! :-) Yes ... I can develop my own film and print the film. I do mostly black and white, but I did buy the chemicals to try doing color film, but I haven't had the chance to try it yet.

I used a Yashica Mat once. It took such lovely shots. I got a kick out of reeling the film. It was a solid camera and I was sorry when I had to return it to its owner.

I like to use the old manual cameras ... it forces me to think about the photo more before clicking the button. :-)

I guess this wouldn't have worked with a couple of "disposable" cameras. It had be those beauties from a different era. Sadly I had parents that thought any kind of career or hobby in any kind of "art" be it photography, painting or sculpture etc was a complete waste of time and so therefore I was actively discouraged from pursuing where my instincts lead me.
I would have killed to be get my hands on such equipment as this and learnt how to use them.
