  • Tad McKinley

    Wow, these are great.

    • I am fortunate enough to own a Divola print from one of his desert dusk series. The light is essentially monochromatic with two intense rectangles of light coming from the windows of a small shack. If you can find the series, take a look – they are wonderful. Also, take a look at my work if you get the chance – it’s always good to get feedback.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing


SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
