The aquisition last year of a Lloca Stereo Rapid camera dating from the late 1950's caused me to resurrect my film developing equipment and shoot some black and white film again. This re-ignited my interest in film and I dug out my old Yashicamat 124G and Mamiya 645 Super cameras. Buying a Vuescan software licence gave rebirth to my Canon film scanners and I was back into analogue photography. It was then a natural progression to mount the Yashica and Mamiya on a slidebar to create cha-cha stereo cameras. The idea then came to create retro style stereocards. I could easily have done this with a digital camera but doing it this way has given my stereo photography a more fun and more challenging edge. Also, having a negative in your hand makes the images more tangible, I can see them rather than trying to imagine them as a space on a hard drive. Please go to my Retrocards: Fokestone
