Daily Inspiration #461 By Tibor Budai 

Hi Steve,

I hope you are doing great! I wanted to post some images I have been recently taking with my M7 film camera in a local barbershop in Switzerland. In fact, I have been going to this barbershop for years (as a customer) and with my recent interest in photography,

I wanted to do some kind of a small reportage of the place and its people. So instead of playing the role of a customer, I played the role of a photographer. I had the authorisation to roam around the place freely so I had

the opportunity to shoot the action of shaving or cutting with smiles from customers or sometime the perplexity on their faces of my intent.

Overall, it was a great experience to shoot and to keep memories of such a place which tend to be more and more disappearing replaced by myriads of souless hair saloons.

More images can be seen though my website at:

  1. Very moody pictures Tibor. Captures what is going on there quite good.
    i would even go that far to say that these kind of images wouldn’t be that good when shot with any modern dslr or mirrorless pixel monster.

  2. Always refreshing to see some images from the film Leica’s.
    There is something about them that takes me right back to being a child again and reading ‘Life’ magazine.
    I love my digital cameras but maintain a Leica MP for the special occasions when I love to use it.

  3. nice photos. i really like them.
    with all the detail-hype, fueled by the a7 people right now, i find the lack of detail in these film photographies kind of soothing… shows me, that imperfection (no offense!) is something, you sometimes actually want to have in your photography…

    • I agree with you, also i found that imperfection in composition makes it better, maybe not all elements are obvious but they define atmosphere and these elements are little hints into the story, on the other hand we need perfect tools and perfect photos sometimes too. There is something special in perfection and imperfection, it’s powerful tool, and we need to know when to employ each.

    • Because, indeed, sometimes we should let the perfection go.
      I like these shots, they are very natural, and the look just fits them.
