Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.


Sometimes, you run across something that's just plain cool. The 'Cameratruck' is one of them. The photographer, Shaun Irving, drives around in a truck he bought on e-Bay for $5000 and converted into a huge camera.

He mounted an old lens taken from a submarine periscope into the side of the truck. The film is hung on the opposite inside wall of the truck, where it is exposed by light coming through the lens when a metal slide is opened. The photographer stands inside the truck (camera) to open and close the 'shutter'while the exposure is made. He then develops the film with a bucket, sponges, developer, and a garden hose.

The entire story is best explained in this pdf. Be sure to smile if you see it drive by!
