While leading the 2014 Fujifilm Rajasthan Photo Trek through the streets of Jaipur, India our group ran across this street photographer. His name is Tikam Chand and he uses a 150 year old German box camera to take portraits of people on the street in front of the Hawa Mahal, His camera is now nothing more than a large box with a old Zeiss lens. The camera doesn't use negatives. It exposes the image onto to photo paper. He then develops the paper in a bath right inside of the camera box. Then washes the paper negative and photographs it again. This then becomes the final print. The customer gets both the paper negative and the positive print all for Rp 300 or around $5.00 USD. We thought he might enjoy someone making a street portrait pf him for a change. Using an iPhone and our Fujifilm Instax Share (SPS-1) Smartphone printer we were able to do just that.
This little printer opened so many doors while traveling through India. Read my review of this printer at http://tinyurl.com/p8coflj. Follow Tikam Chand on Facebook facebook.com/TheOldPhotography
