An interview with a man in Buenos Aires who makes his own cameras
  • While I was in Buenos Aires, in a small antique market, I met a man named Ricardo who both makes his own medium format cameras, but is also working on a project to modify a bunch of 6x6 fixed lens TLR's into 6x7 TLR's with interchangeable lenses. He agreed to let me interview him for my youtube channel. It's always exciting to meet other people who make cameras - especially when their cameras/designs are better than my own!

    This is definitely not my best work, technically - since I am traveling internationally, I have pretty minimal gear with me and his booth at the market is pretty small so I needed to make a lot of compromises for framing and lens choice (a 15mm lens means our hands and arms look huge when moved to the foreground)!
