In Camera City View

I shot this photo on Friday night from Rotary Park in Calgary. The camera in the picture is my Mamiya 645 1000s with a 80mm f/1.9. I had the camera set up on a tripod and had another tripod set up higher over the pictured camera. I shot this photo with a Sony A7R with a Nikon 55mm f/2.8 Micro manual focus lens. After my first test shot I knew I was going to need some external light, because the street light that was on in the park was super orange and the grass was a very ugly version of a pumpkin orange. Since I didn’t bring any lighting I just whipped out my trusty iPhone and used the flashlight on there to paint the scene while the 30 exposure was on. I think it all worked out pretty good!

Minolta City

I was about to toss this old camera in the trash when I I took a look at the mirror after I took the lens off. I thought it looked pretty cool with the little lines and then I though I might be able to get a good photo if I incorporated the mirror of the camera. Since I’m a city guy I thought having part of the city in the background and in the camera would look pretty cool. I like how it turned out 🙂
