Graflex Pacemaker 23 Speed Graphic roll-film camera, serial number corresponding to a 1947 manufacture date; fitted with Kodak Ektar 101mm f/4.5 professional lens, circa 1953. I used this quite a bit to photograph events in the 1980s for situations where significantly enlarged prints were anticipated.

Photographed using Leica X2 digital camera with Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 lens: APS-C sensor (23.6mm x 15.8mm), 16.2 megapixels; set to f/12 at 1/125-second exposure, ISO 100; studio strobe lighting, triggered by on-camera flash. Composed for 1 x 1 square aspect ratio; raw to jpeg. Processed in Adobe Lightroom 4 and Photoshop Elements 10.
