Analogue Photography in Hong Kong V : David Davidoff

Lei Yue Mun, Hong Kong
Yau Ma Tei Photography

There are a lot of great street photography shots on David Davidoffs flickr stream, but I especially like his photos of rural parts of Hong Kong like Lei Yue Mun. Check out his flickr stream here.

When and why did you start taking analogue photos?
Oh, let me think about should be about few years ago(about 6-7 years)...I always like analogue stuff(e.g. Vacuum Tubes, LPs...), it seems nearly close to life and humanity.
Originally, I know nothing about photography. Firstly, I start to collecting vintage cameras, I am so curious what image will be come out if taken by these vintage cameras...then, I start to tacking my first roll...second, third...till now.
I observed that life gone too soon, something disappears and missing soon...I just want to record them and freeze the moments of life...

How many cameras do you have and which one is your favorite?
Ummm, I haven't count it clearly, but I guess it's about 200-300 or more...and which one is my favorite?? hahaha...which I held it on my hand...even if, I always bring my Leica M3 in my bag, this is a sharp weapon of street photography.

Analogue Photography in Hong Kong: ALEX S.F.C.

This is the first part of a series on analogue photographers in Hong Kong

ALEX S.F.C (Alex Chen) takes stunning film photographs in Hong Kong. I especially like his night time shots.

Check out his flickr stream.

When and why did you start taking analogue photos?
I started taking film since 2004 as I was amazed by film's texture. The first film camera I used was Lomo LCA, followed by Contax T3 which is a point-and-shoot camera, but it surpasses the quality of many DSLR.

How many cameras do you have and which one is your favorite?
I have 7 film cameras and 1 DC. Leica MP is my all time favourite, I love its classic outlook, sturdy metallic body, high reliability, silent shutter and function-able even without battery.

Where do you buy gear or film in HK and where do you develop your film?
Most of my cameras were bought from the Internet. I have my films developed in Colorluxe Express in Wan Chai.
