Photographer Captures Landscapes in the Viewfinder of a 35mm SLR

Comment

Photographer Oliver Hihn thinks its a shame that so many old cameras sit around on shelves and slowly gather dust, so he decided to take his dad’s old Elbaflex VX 1000 35mm SLR out on a hike. Instead of shooting film photos, he decided to photograph landscapes framed in the waist-level viewfinder of the camera.

“I bought some analog film and took a few pictures,” Hihn says. “It’s all fun and it is a great feeling to try analog photography, but it is pretty expensive to develop the film and you have to wait until you see a result.”

“I’m an impatient person so I just combined analog photography and digital photography,” he continues. “These photos were all taken around my hometown Nürtingen, a small town in southern Germany.”
