About Mohammad Reza Alvandi

I was born in Iran and graduated in Chemistry. About twenty years ago, I started photography as a fun. But after some time I worked on that more seriously. At first, I did shots, landscapes and portraits with a 35mm camera, but due to having interest in nature, my photos, shifted to landscapes photography.

After some time, I bought a medium format camera. But at the end due to having certain advantages, I chose large format camera. I work with many formats, black & white and color films. I tried to develop films.

Although digital cameras are widely inclusive, and almost nobody goes to buy the analog camera, But yet, evocative sense of working with analog cameras, has a special place for me.

Considering that, analog photographic process is more complex and longer, but in my opinion, it will cause photographer perform more accurately on the subject, and image capture. My goal to run this site is not comparing analog and digital cameras. Just I want to review methods and specific techniques for analog photography, according to my ability and knowledge, although the basics of both methods are quite similar.

In recent years, based on my need, I began to design and build two camera (Panoral 45 or handy camera) and panoramic camera (Panoral 617). For this project I did many studies in the fields of photography, mechanics, electronics and chemistry and I paid too much attention to modularity and quality. I've dedicated this site to landscape Photography. I've tried to put articles about equipment, procedures and other information on photos and photography in site. I hope to be useful for everyone who likes this subject.
