Art Spotlight: Om-1


3D Artist Ilya Kalyagin was given a film camera by a friend. Here he shares how he recreated the camera in digital 3D using Blender and Substance Painter.

Photography is my second hobby. In addition to digital photography, I tried many times to shoot with film, but each time I put it off...until my friend gave me an Olympus OM-1 camera. I wanted to shoot with this camera; it is beautiful in everything and elegant in its design and ergonomics, in particular. The next time I looked for an object to practice in 3D, I didn't think for long.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
