  1. Review of "Book of Alternative Photographic Processes"

    by , 03-08-2008 at 07:56 AM
    This morning the postman dropped of a package. It turned out to be Christopher James book in the new second edition. I imidiatly started reading this book. This is a very inspiring book, and I am going to explore it much more in the near future. It is a book that is hard to put down again. It is so inspiring and easy to read. Only problem is finding the time to test all the things mentioned in the book. I have been flipping back and forth in the book and reading whatever seemed interesting.
  2. A touch of history

    How did it happen that I am about to buy a camera from 1935. In this age of digital everything, why do I even consider a camera that old. The camera that I am looking at is an old danish design. It is a NORKA (Nordisk Kamerafabrik) multi camera. It will let me take multiple pictures on the same sheet of paper or plate (see picture). As the seller puts it the camera is supposed to work but might need some TLC. This makes me wonder if it will set my 20x24" camera project back or if it be a further ...

  3. Turning to 3D

    by , 01-22-2008 at 04:42 AM
    Yesterday I had help from a savy 3D CAD teacher. With his help, we have turned some of my ideas into 3D drawings. It is an interesting process. I feel that I have e good spacial feel for how things look and work, but seeing something in 3D on a monitor is very different. We set off to just get something into 3D and not look at if it will work or not. We had to start somewhere and we decided to start with a contact printing frame. The software package he uses allows for making cuts between to pieces ...
  4. Material - traditional or modern

    by , 01-18-2008 at 10:45 AM
    Today I spent the day looking at a factory where they manufacture items in composit materials. They make all kind of things, from bikes to boats. I got some small samples. They are made from materials like carbonfiber, Kevlar friber, glassfiber. Some made with a core from a different material.

    I got a ton of litterature to study. There are so many variations to consider if I want to go this route with my camera.

    On the other hand. I have wood from a 60 year old Elm ...
  5. My future camera

    by , 01-12-2008 at 10:00 AM
    After I made an 8x10" portrait camera as an exam project, I got the urge to make another camera. After looking around I have decided on building a 20x24" ULF camera. My initalt thought was "just" to build a classic wooden camera along the lines of so many others. After looking a litteraly hundreds of webpages on building LF and ULF cameras, I decided to build one that will be my very own. A camera where I can "re-invent the wheel" if I want to.

    After ...
