Ever since we saw the camera work of Dora Goodman a few months back, we’ve been meaning to get her on the Magazine for an interview. Now that we did, we can’t help but grin as we look at her work and read what she has to say. Dora is the perfect example for the saying “Follow your heart.” She left her career in 3d animated graphics to take up camera making and boy are we glad that she did. All of her cameras are carefully built, purposely designed, and beautiful in form. Learn more about her and her work in this short interview and who knows, you might just get bitten by the camera craft bug.

Passion Pursued — An Interview With Camera Maker Dora Goodman

The Goodman One is an open source camera that I would like to share with anyone with access to a 3D printer. You’d not only have a chance to make it yourself using my assembly instructions, but to further tweak, finetune or even redesign and pass it on as well. I have already designed a rollfilm and sheetfilm back, viewfinders, cold flash mount and a couple of other accessories to attach, but would like to challenge all of you makers out there to go ahead and develop the camera even further.
The Goodman One could therefore be a device that is free yet professional tool allowing creative freedom for any experimental photographer. You can request various files, finetuned printer settings and a detailed notes on both the necessary particles and procedure needed to put the camera together. I truly hope it will reach as many of you out there as humanly possible and will open up new opportunities in the path of photography.

Goodman One – The Open Source Camera
more at Dora Goodman
I try to shoot atmospheres and the feelings that I have about a place, a moment, an occasion or a person. I try to ignore the physical stuff, as much as you can in photography, and concentrate on conveying the sense of being there. In street stuff it’s trying to capture the atmosphere of a place, even if it’s just a street. I look for the dramatic, beautiful, exciting and inspiring features of those places. Generally that’s around light and colour.
… and finally, what is your Desert Island DSLR?
The Nikon D850 is one of those cameras that really does do everything. It’s got enormous resolution, so many features such as the multi-exposure overlay, and incredible dynamic range.
Street photographer, journalist and educator.
