Vintage Praktica Super TL Camera

Low Key Product Photography

I was very lucky to get my hands on a Vintage Praktica Super TL Camera, one of my neighbours had this Praktica Super TL camera just sitting in his garage and asked me if I would like it as he had no use for it. I couldn’t say no could I? I don’t think it works any more but I do think it looks great and very retro. With this in mind I decided to try my luck at a cool product shot. In my mind I decided that the final image would be in black and white with a black ¬†background (low key photograph) and that is what I did. Using black card for it to sit on and for the background I positioned my Canon 430 EX II Flash quite close to the vintage Praktica Super TL at about 45 degrees. I set my Canon 7d to 1/250 with the ISO at 100 and the aperture at f11 then took the shot and hey presto a lovely black and white low key photograph of a vintage Praktica Super TL camera. I hope you like the photograph.
