Just a picture of the trusty old Mamiya. The lighting was done with a flashlight and a snoot, to get that spotlight feeling, with an added bonus that it was easier to make the image appear sephia-toned (because of the warmth of the flashlight light).

Slighly overexposed, and it could do with being a TAD darker, but I managed to resist the use of the Levels tool.

When that is said: Having been taken with a Canon D60, the image DESPERATELY needs sharpening, and I am rather pissed off this was illegal in this challenge. Oh well

Composition: Looks quite centralised, but with the shadow and lighting seems to suit it quite well.
Technical: Nice focus, lighting and shadow.
Meets challenge: Yes
Overall impression: I really think the cloth adds a lot to this photo - making me think it's someone travelling or something like that. My favourite shot so far.

Think it needs a little better backdrop that fits the mood of the camera and time period...or even just a solid background, because this background unfortunately claims too much of the attention away from the camera.

Too bad the immediate area around the camera is over exposued.
