about this blog

My purpose in creating this blog is mostly personal.  I don’t know if anyone else will read this or look at my images, but I see it as kind of a personal record and assignment.  By posting my images, I figure it’ll push me to work at creating images I like and am proud to post.

I did some of my best photography when I was in college taking photography classes, having assignments, being pushed to produce something artistic to present to the class and to my teacher, and I hope that posting images on this blog will give me a little bit of that same kind of push.

And it will give me a chance to share a little info about the old cameras that I’m playing with.

  1. You have a new fan here. After being a wedding/event photgrapher for the past 11 yrs (and still currently) I want to go “back” to shooting film, and have interest in almost the same classic cameras. My heart lies w/ 120 film and TLR’s right now. Thanks for sharing. Kenneth

        Hello again Rick,

        Just wanted to circle back to you and let you know that you still have a follower/fan here! I recently picked up a Pacemaker speed graphic camera w/ a 6×9 back for a bargain price. Bellows is in great shape. Will be sending to a local repair shop for a good onceover, but plan on enjoying using this great piece! Will be in touch. Ken

        Thanks, Ken. That Speed Graphic would be a cool camera to try.

      Thanks, Jeeheon. I just checked out your blog and photostream. I LOVE the images in your photostream. I’ll be checking back to see more images in the future and to see what you add to your blog.
      Thanks for your comment! And thanks for being the first person to subscribe to my blog! It’s fun to have someone in such a distant part of the world from me following it.

  3. I will keep an eye out for your future posts and photos too. I am in the process of turning my own blog into a more photography oriented one and recently started shooting film again after a long long break. Keep it up!

        hello rick,I bought an electro gtn in 1973 and took great portraits of my young children,I havent used it for years.I have resurrected my gtn,and have made my own battery addaptor cant wait to put a roll of film in it, and take some shots of my one year old grandson,your blog has inspired me thanks. Bill Fitzsimmons.

        • Rick Schuster says:

          Thanks, Bill. I think it’s a great camera for candid portraits. The f/1.7 lens is great for low light, and creates a nice short depth-of-field. I hope you have fun shooting with it again.

    Just ran across your site/blog. Love it! Inspiration to dig out my old film cameras, which I’ve been thinking about for a while. First up .. probably my Fuji 690 rangefinder. FYI, I just shared your site on my Facebook business page for FotoSharp. Hope it brings you some viewers!
