Mannequin Series

From the site:
“there is absolutely no airbrushing or digital manipulation in the photos on this page. The magic of these photos is the meticulously planned image alignment. I shot these using film, locking the camera to a tripod and then taking two photos one after the other. It’s old-school photo montage, nothing more.”

Medium Format Pinhole Lego Camera

Very clever project. He built himself a pinhole camera out of LEGO bricks. It uses 120 roll film and sports a film counter! I might use that in my next pinhole camera myself... Medium Format Pinhole Lego Camera
