I got a letter from Austin with some pictures. It made me glad to listen to his enthusiasm about photography. And how could I resist publishing pictures created with the beautiful OM1? - Mr Urbano
Here are some facts about this modern classic
Austin has also made a blog entry about the camera.
The playground shots were done with a 30 yr old Olympus OM1 35mm film camera. the light meter and ASA indicators are broken on it so i've been using guess work/best guess etc. I've been quite pleased!
I shoot film currently but have done a lot of shooting with Nikon digitals. I still believe that film is unsurpassed. The coloring and all is so beautiful. I love how organic the process is and how much i must slow down.
I spent my early years in my grandfather's camera shop and attribute my passions for photography to him....
I'm very passionate about the image, creating it, composing it, and ultimately sharing it...in hopes that it too will tell a story to the viewer.
