auto salon magazine feature

I’ve just received the latest issue of, the Australian based, Auto Salon Magazine which features an RX-7 which I shot. The issue also features the work of three other Speedhunters contributors; Paddy McGrath, Kevin Raekelboom, and Rod Chong! So if you’re in one of the lucky countries that receives this magazine, be sure to pick it up.

Thanks for the kind words, lachlan! I, personally, didn’t think it was a strong set of photos, but I’m glad it worked out for the magazine.

hmm…

There’s always that saying that a learning photographer should always bring their camera everywhere they go –a saying which I totally agree on. But lately, I’ve been on a break from my camera and leaving it at home. When I am away, I feel the itch for it. Opportunities always arises to be able to take ‘that shot’ and when you’re cameraless, and you can’t help but feel a bit sad.

With the onset of iPhone photography (and with the help of apps like Chase Jarvis’ Best Camera) fast becoming as a popular and a some what serious medium for photography, the urge to not lug a mighty DSLR around everywhere starts to feel okay. But then there are days when I do bring that mighty black brick around. Yesterday was one of those days, and I did not regret it…

Bryan -

I need to get a GL shirt!

Jon -

You check out the “Shakeitphoto” ap as well, makes a decent polaroid immitation.

Rockets -

the last few shots from the rolleicord

Elijah -

damn that picture of the wave and the sand is just amazing. Almost looks like a Holga shot.

David -

Your rolleicord is in great care
I’m loving it man thank great shots!

KLBO -

I would have to agree… the wave shot was amazing. I need to go print the photos from my yashica.

Great work as always.

Linhbergh -

David, let me know when you get some shots from the Rolleicord, I’d love to see them! I’m glad you’re enjoying the camera, I do miss it a lot.

Annabelle -

Linhberg: I really like this set. Especially how you captured the water =)

shots from straight out of the 1950s

I finally had time to take my newly acquired (not to mention, ancient) camera out for the first time to the Los Angeles County Fair. It took some getting used to after coming from the super simple to use, Rolleicord. The first big hurdle to get over, with this camera, is learning how to properly load the film. If you load it up wrong, you will have overlapping frames. And, no one wants overlapping frames, right? The second big hurdle to get over is to remember to take it easy when winding up the said film. The eastern side of the Cold War did not know how to build quality cameras, and not taking it easy will lead to things breaking. But damn, the Carl Zeiss 80mm F2.8 is a fantastic piece of glass. The bokeh that screams out of this piece of light sucking Cold War technology is phenomenal. A blurry and unfocused view on life is a dreamy, and fantastical state. Bokeh isn’t for everyone, but it sure is definitely for me.

I can’t wait to do a proper shoot with this camera.

Adam -

I might just need one.

Cory Pham -

wow, those photos are great. You actually inspired me to pick up a pentacon six tl for my first medium format.

I finally had some time to dig through some of my shots from Formula D Sonoma and this photo of Vaughn Gittin Jr and Darren McNamara, initiating into the first corner, was one result of said digging. I can’t remember the last time I posted something rice related on this blog, and I don’t consider that Mitsubishi post rice!

guten tag, from the communist eastern block!

If you’ve kept up with my facebook or twitter, over the course of the past two weeks, you would’ve noticed that I was selling my dear ‘ol Rolleicord camera. Today, the postman delivered the camera that was to replace that loyal TLR. Behold, the majestic, Pentacon Six TL! This is medium format SLR camera, which was conceived in the eastern block of Germany, and modeled after western 35mm SLRs, that boasts a lot of nerdy, technical improvements over the Rolleicord. All technical and nerdy things which I will not talk about because that is of little importance over the grand scheme of things. All you need to know is that this Pentacon Six TL will make the world extra blurry, and extra out of focus. Basically, more bokeh!

I’ll definitely updating the blog over the course of the coming weeks as I get acquainted and start shooting with the camera.

Justin W. Coffey -

WOW!

The second photo, the one through the viewfinder(?), that is incredible stuff!

It almost makes me feel a bit dizzy! Perfect :D

knx -

congrats on the purchase, but pentacons are pain in the ass to use, and they break quite often. I’ve had one of these, and quickly sold it.

Linhbergh -

knx, thanks! but, what kept breaking on your Pentacon? And when you sold the camera, what did you replace it with?

knx -

In my P- Six the frames were constantly overlapping. Maybe I was doing something wrong when loading a film, but even after repairing the problem kept coming back after few days.
Also, the film advanse mechanism when used too fast (moving the advance lever very quickly to next frame) can break some inside mechanisms.

Now I have only digital, but I miss medium format and keep thinking about buying something new :)

Linhbergh -

knx, I’ve just started shooting my first roll of film with the Pentacon, including, how to properly load and take photos without overlapping. Those are the two sites that I’ve been reading up on… We’ll see how my first roll turns out:

So far, my shooting experiences with the camera have been great. I love it much more than my Rolleicord already. The actions are so much smoother and it feels like an actual camera. Rolleicord’s are completely different creatures to shoot with…

knx -

Have fun with it, mayby mine was just an unlucky one :) I’ll check your blog in a few days, hoping to see some great photos !

Cory Pham -

Followed you straight off of CR.Net, love your blog. I truely love your photos.

But on the subject, nice camera! Still selling the rollei? How much?!

Linhbergh -

Thanks man! And yeah I’ve already sold the Rolleicord… sorry.

Cory Pham -

mind me asking, how well is the Pentacon working out for you? have any more photos?

Linhbergh -

I’m about to get my first roll from the Pentacon developed this weekend. We’ll see how it goes. I love the camera though, its a bit tougher to use than the Rolleicord, but I think the pros out weigh the cons by far.

american identity, part 1

I could say many things about this American Civil War reenactment that I attended this past weekend. Instead, I’ll let the photos do the talking:

ross -

jose -

Kenny -

Christian Mejia -

Linhbergh -

falken girl: mj castillo

When I was in Seattle, for the 5th round of Formula Drift at Evergreen Speedway, I was following Chris Forsberg around for a little day-in-the-life-of guest blog, and also had the opportunity to shoot the Falken model, Mary J Castillo. Just posted today on Speedhunters.com, is a guest blog, which she wrote, and also feature my some shots of her throughout the day. Head on over to check that out: GUEST BLOG: MARY J CASTILLO>> A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FALKEN GIRL

I also had the opportunity to shoot Mary, behind the grid at Evergreen Raceway, for a little impromptu shoot. She had a little bit of a tough time adjusting to my shoot style since she’s been trained, as a model, for a completely different look. But after a few minutes, her bashfulness (can you even believe a girl that is in the limelight so much was bashful?) subsided and a glimpse of Mary J Castillo, which the public eye rarely gets to see, came out.

Grady -

Can she wear my cowboy hat also?

Bryan -

Very nice pictures, Linh! I’m particularly a fan of panels 1 and 4. You and Mary did a lot there to make her seem less like a statue and more like the girl next door–very human, contented, and somehow vulnerable at the same time. That probably makes no sense at all, but suffice in to say that you did good work!

Adam -

You have a hard life, Linh. A hard life.

Robert -

Great set, Linhbergh. You always find the perfect way to showcase the human side of people we rarely see.

Kenny -

Amazing shots, she’s beautiful!

drew -

brilliant, just brilliant. i’d guess these are probably some of the best photos anyone has ever taken of her. no joke: as a model and grid girl, she probably doesn’t get very much opportunity to participate in some nice, simple portraiture. i think you even allude to this.

hoji -

Mate, well done! Very nice & tight art direction, it’s subtle yet still captures all the beauty of Ms Castillo effectively!

My favourite image would have to be IMG_0410.jpg. It’s got everything, including aviators! Haha!

*two aussie thumbs up*

Were all diiferent. Judging people by the jobs they have or the car they own. Just because I slam my car doesn’t make me a ricer. I drive a Miata that doesn’t mean I don’t love Muscle cars. We all have our own views on everything.
