square magic

After years of using a holga, I decided to upgrade my love for medium format photography to a Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex. I was largely inspired to buy this camera after seeing one of my favorite photographers on flickr (feaverish) post lovely photos he took with his. Here are some other medium format photos that inspire me to get out and shoot more with mine! There’s something so dang magical about square format.

    kate, these are great. I too want a medium format camera! I’ve been thinking about renting a Mamiya… oh how fun that would be!

    These are great and I have always loved square prints! Can you tell me about the film and how you print your pictures. Do you use a dark room or take them to a print shop? Where can I find a dependable camera/camera dealer like this?
    Thanks in advance

    Completely agree! I want to buy a couple more cameras myself but need a fund to draw from :P Post some of your pictures from that camera so we can see too!

    Nothing like a nice big ol square to make images jump out and hug you!
