About my photography and film camera

BY SHIHORI MIYASAKA
@ VOL 35 ON NOV 28, 2015

I am Shihori Miyasaka, an amateur photographer.
I take photos as my hobby. The cameras I use are;
Hassleblad 5000 Classic in Medium Format,
Pentax MX with 35mm film,
and NATURA CLASSICA of compact film camera.
Film camera is laborious and costly. Everything like exposure and focusing on is manual. It is a difficult point for me, and a good point of them too.
What incomparable about photo by film camera is tone of color. I always care 3 things when taking photos;
Make this photo with meanings,
Cut out the daily scene which tickles sense of fun,
and Aware of lighting in any case.
The world of photography is deep, and I am on the way to learn.
If you become interested in photography and camera, especially in film camera, I am so glad.

私の写真とフィルムカメラについて
宮坂しほりと申します。アマチュアフォトグラファーとしましたが、趣味で写真を撮っています。
私が主に使っているのは、中盤カメラのハッセルブラッド500クラシック、35mmのペンタックスMX、コンパクトカメラのナチュラクラシカというフィルムカメラです。
フィルムは手間とお金がかかります。そして、露出やピントも全てマニュアルで、はじめは苦労しました。でも、そこがいい所です。そして何よりフィルムならではの色合いがたまりません。

私は写真を撮るときに、意図を持った写真にする、日常の心くすぐる瞬間を切り取る、とにかく光を意識する、この3つを考えています。写真は奥深いもので、私もまだ勉強中です。このプレゼンで少しでも写真やカメラ、特にフィルムカメラに興味を持ってもらえればと思います。

Really lifelike, that is what he wants to make

BY NARUO KUSAKARI
@ VOL 35 ON NOV 28, 2015

Master NARUKARI (Naruo Kusakari) is a creator of wooden toy in Nagano.
He was on Pecha Kucha Night in Tokyo few years ago.
Using fret-saw, he gave life into wood.
His toys are filled with life, then sing, dance and talk.
Making wooden toys with fret-saw itself is art performance.
He makes toys by cutting wood with fret-saw 
sometimes singing, sometimes dancing, sometimes being Sushi chef,
at still other times pretending comic storyteller.
He is the one and only fret-saw performer in the world!

「まるで生きているみたい、そんな木のおもちゃを作りたい」

マスター・ナルカリは、数年前にぺちゃくちゃ東京にも出演した、長野県の木のおもちゃ作家です。
彼は糸ノコで木を切っておもちゃを作りながら、それに命を吹き込みます。
彼のおもちゃは命を得て、歌い、踊り、会話をします。マスター・ナルカリが糸ノコで木を切りおもちゃを作るという行為も、
アートパフォーマンスです。ある時は歌い、踊りながら、ある時は寿司屋のように、ある時は落語のように、糸ノコで木を切り、おもちゃを作ります。
彼の糸ノコパフォーマンスは、世界でも彼だけです!
