Humbled

January 28th, 2009 by admin

On my recent trip to Japan, the crew from bodykit manufacturer ChargeSpeed, took us out for dinner. I have photographed a fair few of their cars, around 8 from memory, and for some reason, they are fans of my work. At the conclusion of the dinner, Kay from ChargeSpeed presented me with a gift, a new camera. I was humbled and thankful that they took the time out to get me a present, for no real reason. Thanks! It’s an interesting camera, a 3D film camera. It uses 4 lenses to shoot on the size of 2 35mm frames, so each lens exposes a half frame. I think I may have some trouble finding someone to develop the prints.

I’m not 100% sure on how it works, but I think the final print is what is called lenticular, which you might remember those animated plastic images with fine ripples on them, as you moved it from side to side the image became animated.
