Are you making photomanipulations too? Harpia's head would look amazing with human body... (but now it is amazing too, of course)

In Nature! how cool!! They are truly impressive, I would love to see one, maybe someday
That image is so cool it really grabs the viewer in a way few images do. That bird is looking right into you
Keep up the fantastic work - hope to see more!

Well, at a zoological garden - but alive, at least.
Theyre really huge and the zookeeper didnt go inside the cage to feed them, but he did at the vulture-cage^^

Thanks a lot :)!

Considering buying a Pouva on eBay now. How much of the atmosphere here is down to the fact you're using expired film?

Hm, good question :)
Im always using expired film, so Im not really able to tell how it would look like with new films.
The other thing is: I believe that my Pouva camera is a bit broken. I bought it on eBay too, it has some scratches and bents and the pictures are really blurred.
I truly love these pictures my Pouva produces but Im sure that this type of camera normally takes better pictures. So I cant say if it is possible to reproduce them with another pouva. But this camera is worth trying anyway!

I just got reckless and bought a Pouva on eBay anyway. A 1955 one - any idea what year your is from? Can't wait to see what it produces. What kind of expired film do you use? I think with that kind of camera, especially a properly vintage one, no two cameras will be alike.

Congratulations! Youll love this camera!

Im using all kinds of films cause I get them from people who found them under their bed or at their cellar^^ I think this was some kind of Agfapan.
My pouva is the first type from 1951.

Im very curious now about your pictures!
