How To Paint Leather Furniture
A number of years ago, my mom gave me my grandfather's photography equipment. My grandfather was a photographer who also hand-painted his portraits. In addition, he was a carpenter who built furniture on which he created artistic relief carvings. Unfortunately, he died when I was 2 and I never got a chance to know him well. I placed his equipment in a box a few years ago and forgot about it. Recently, I decided to pull this stuff back out and see what I could learn about it, with the hopes of eventually shooting with the equipment.
The camera is an Agfa Ventura 66 Deluxe, which is a medium format folder that shoots 6X6 negatives (square format). I knew nothing about it, so I did some research, but couldn't find a lot online. What I have discovered is that this camera was introduced either in the late 40's or early 50's and is German-made. It is fitted with a top-of-the-line 4 element, coated, Tessar-type, Solinar lens, set within a deluxe 9 speed Compur-Rapid shutter assembly. It was Agfa's first post-war addition to the premium folder market and was a direct competitor to the Voigtlander Perkeo II and the Zeiss-Ikon Ikonta.
None of this means a lot to me as I shoot with a Canon 12.2mp XSi Rebel DSLR. Before that, I shot 35mm film with Nikon cameras primarily. I'm not really familar with medium-format cameras, other than I know that they take great pictures on a much larger negative than does a 35mm camera. But, I'm facinated with this camera and would like to figure out if it even works. I've been studying it to determine how it operates. So far, I've discovered that the shutter is fully operational (must be cocked) and the aperature control seems to work fine. Beyond that, I'm not really sure. If anyone has any ideas about this camera, I'm all ears. Also, what brand of film is recommended and where do I get it?
I've also included my grandfather's GE light meter in the shot, as well as the leather cases. This stuff is pretty facinating.
Update: It appears that the lens is not the Solinar model, but rather the 3 glass element Apotar lens.
In this ultra modern office/den, we see how steel and glass are harmoniously fused to create a one of a kind interior. Built for a woman with an active lifestyle, this room uses a monochromatic theme of russet combined with shades of black and off-white. Automotive white paint is used for the walls and ceiling in order to achieve that glossy yet chic look. There is a collage of glass as different kinds of it are used all over the room.
An area of the room is treated with raised curved flooring that echoes to the ceiling. This detail is meant to delineate the den from the office, making the room more organized. Inspired by the letter G, the modern Oh-G loveseat is done in white leather, incorporating russet and black accents. This particular furniture piece has a classy and refreshing take, highly inviting to lounge around on those lazy afternoons. During working hours, a very stylish yet functional table in glass and steel was designed to partner with the equally tasteful Anne’s hand chair. It’s trendy yet good enough to do some serious office work.
The design is central the individual who lives here … it is meant to reveals her personality … strong, driven, composed, and full of life
…A creative and energetic woman of the new millennium.
