About First of the shots taken with my 'new' 1939 Rolleiflex Automat. This camera is great for 'spy' shots as its a TLR so you look down from above and nobody suspects...

I owe the inspiration for buying this contraption to Bea Friedeli and I LOVE THIS CAMERA (even if I am still figuring out how to work it!)

Stay tuned for more . . .

Any of you experienced 6x6ers / Rolleiflexers I would really love to hear any feedback you may have -- be brutal, I'm the first to admit I'm still learning -- hence the title i gave to this one..

hi omar,

nice candid, great work for one of your first shots here. a bit overexposed, maybe, but this image has a lot of charme.

best wishes,

Very nice shot. The viewing screen can also improve the sense of composition. It even helped me years ago! ;-)

Best regards,

to capture moments is better for me from artistic ones, these ones we will remember them, the others I don't think.
excellent meaning.
I have the same level of camera Minolta Dynax 5 and it is loaded with kodad pro BW negative film asa 400
