Photographer Image Title, Comments and Photo Data
Dr. Adam R. Bujak "Reggie, I CAUGHT YOU - Lexi" (167KB)
Because some people said in the Kiev Forum that Kiev camera is a poor choice for Wedding Photography, and since I have four different MF systems, I decided to use Kievs 60 and 88 modified by Hartblei at my daughter's wedding. My confidence in properly functioning Kievs has not diminished. Up-graded Kievs are capable of outsanding results.

Here is the story behind these two images: I have asked my daughter Lexi, "Can you show us, that you caught this man as your husband?" To demonstrate this, she used her veil(image one). Reggie responded, "No, I caught You, Lexi". Lexi's answer was, "Did You Really?" (image two). I HOPE YOU HAVE FUN, as do our friends looking at our 500+ wedding images.

Paolo Cavazza How much to closing time? (121KB)
Tired and bored, the young ladies in this extemporary box-office were waiting for closing time at the photographic equipment show in Castel San Giovanni, Northern Italy, on 9 September 2001. Among all the people who was walking around with cameras of every kind, they took no account of my Kiev 88, allowing me to take this candid shot on medium format.

Relay Runner (75KB)
School festival, Japan. I found that shooting action with a rangefinder is not so easy! I could only pre-focus and wait until my subject came into the right position, squeeze the shutter release, and hope for the best.
