burning man

Here are my first Burning Man prints. These were taken on a camera I found at a sidewalk sale a photography store nearby had. I really wanted to shoot medium format at Burning Man, but did not want to risk roughing up my Autocord. It is a Balda Gloria made in 1934 in Dresden, Germany. This folder shoots 6x9 medium format (120) film. The bellows had a few pinholes in them, but nothing some RTV sealant couldn't fix. The trickiest thing on this camera is that there is no focus. You simply estimate the distance to your subject, and set the lens to that. Luckily I found this site and made my own paper rangefinder. fishing sunken ship jump choo choo playa jesus carriage the man
