Ode to a Contaflex 1V
I was going through the archives page of my school's website and came across an article I wrote a while back. It is about the changing face of photography and the joy my father's contaflex 1V camera has been bringing me in these turbulent photo-times. I thought some of you would like to read it.
What's Old is New Again
Nice. I just got bitten by the Contaflex bug. I the last month I've bought a Contaflex II, a III (bought last night), a Super B and 2 incomplete IV's for parts. A roll of Plus-X is waiting developing from the II. Can't wait to see the results of the Zeiss lenses.
Man, I really love those colors. I'm not into those velvia colors. Guess that's why I like Reala and I put my digi P&S in "neutral" color mode instead of saturated color mode. I wonder if there is a way to get that kind of color in print film with a combination of film/filters. Guess we need a '60's/70's mood filter from Hoya or Tiffen :)
