The camera stunt

What you see above is actually more of a really quick stunt (for obvious reasons), than a just-thought-of shoot. Hanging from my neck are eight of my extremely heavy vintage Russian cameras (approx overall weight: 6kg).

I was directly inspired by a Yul Brynner and Cecil B. DeMille photograph, where Mr. Brynner was lugging five cameras at the same time (see samples of his work superb here).

    To be accurate, I put all the cameras with cases in a big plastic bag, and weighed it. Di lang 6kg, 6.5kg ang hebigats.
