Dodge and Burn T-shirts
I got some great T-shirts in the post the other day, which always makes me happy. Dodge and burn are making some great shirts with classic camera designs.

I was contacted by Dodge and Burn founder Ted Rybakowski recently as he wanted me to see his shirts, and as soon as I saw them I knew they would be a big hit with the analog crowd. Classic designs and very cool cameras featured on the shirts. I decided to get a couple and I love them. They are well made, and the design is brilliant. I am slowly building up a collection of photography T-shirts and this set is a definite plus for me. There are loads of classic camera designs to choose from and the selection is getting bigger all the time. What I like about these shirts is that they are made by photographers and passionate camera people, not some faceless marketing company. In fact, this is Ted…

A few words about Dodge and Burn by Ted;
Dodge and Burn was created out of a passion for analogue photography and classic cameras. The sculpted mechanical beauty of vintage cameras, the legendary photographers who used them, and the iconic images they created are the things that fuel the Dodge and Burn brand.

We’re neck-deep into the digital age and more people than ever are taking photos. I believe that regardless of whether you use your iPhone or an old Leica screw mount camera to capture your decisive moment, you are part of the history of photography. Dodge and Burn is here to remind you of this.

Each of the cameras illustrated on our tees is a classic. From the elegant and precise Leica rangefinders of the 1950s to the rugged war-zone-tested Nikon’s of the 1970s, these shirts pay homage to some of the best cameras ever made.

We feature a line of vintage camera t-shirts and publish a monthly guide to photography events in New York City.
Several of our t-shirts are based on cameras in my personal collection. All of the cameras are iconic and represent high-points in the history of photography and cameras.
I launched Dodge & Burn because I love photography and classic cameras. I personally shoot with vintage cameras and see them as amazing instruments that combine mechanics and chemistry to create images. I also consider vintage cameras to be beautiful, historically significant objects. Intuitively, I knew that there are many people around the world who love these cameras as much as I do.

We use American-made shirts and our shirts are hand-printed in New York City.
Our short-term plans include more shirt designs. We have many classic cameras on our wish list, plus we’ve received tons of suggestions from our customers as well as users writing to the site. We are also working on a new product that we know will really excite anyone who loves classic cameras.
Our shirts are now being worn across the U.S., Canada, U.K, Norway, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Malaysia, Hong-Kong, Australia and many other countries.

Thanks Ted, for the awesome T-shirts and for telling us about D&B. I am very happy to be wearing your shirts and I hope others get in on them too, they are very cool.
Check out the Dodge & Burn website Get on there and get yourself one (or several) of these great shirts and become part of the D&B crew. You can also follow them on Twitter.

    Neck deep in the digital age’? No, we’re still paddling in the shallows! This is the wet plate era of digital. Most of us are still behaving as if the cameras are film cameras which happen to have a sensor in them. They still look like film cameras. Dodge and Burn are among my favourite Photoshop tools. There’s still a long way to go.

    Great idea. Love them all, makes it difficult to choose. Any thoughts on perhaps enlargers, some which were a thing of beauty in their own right & classic chemistry formulas? Keep up the good work.
