flickr friend of mine and fellow toy camera fan who lives in Japan – Susumu Kohda (Tokiocityphotos on flickr), noticed some of my photos in a Japanese magazine called Snap! and sent me 3 images from it today. I was excited to see photographs of my dog, daughter (and friends), chicken, trees near our house and a couple of long exposure images of Melbourne at night in the magazine, which were taken with a prototype version of the BBF or ‘Blackbird Fly’ from Superheadz. Funnily enough I haven’t seen the shots until now as I sent the exposed rolls along with the camera straight back to Tokyo after 5 days of shooting! (The guys at Superheadz will be sending me them eventually, I know from past experience with the Holga 135BC, they’re great to work with) but it was sweet to see that at least some turned out OK considering I hadn’t used the camera before and didn’t even have a user manual! (not to mention that the 5 days I had the camera were the darkest, most overcast, rainy days Melbourne had seen all year!) Superheadz must have developed them and used a few of my shots as examples for the article, which looks to be a review of the new 35mm plastic BBF, a toycamera TLR that I’ve talked about previously here, and made a video reviewed of here is very cool and looks like they might be near to releasing it, which is even cooler. I’m unfamiliar with the magazine Snap but did find a link to the Japanese site of Snap!.
