:shock: OMG I love them. Especially the first, but still love them both. What camera did you shoot them with? Film? Developing? Printing? Lay it on me, man, I gotta know...
I love the second one, PB. The deliberate softness works much better here than in the first one, I think. Although #1 could *almost* get away with an Impressionist feel, especially if it were hand tinted.
More info, please? Camera, film type, lens..... you know the drill.
Here is the camera. No manufacturer info available.
The film was Kodak Plus-X Pan 125 ISO.
Negative size is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.
Film was cut from 4x5 sheets.
holy crap!! Ye olde box camera..... :love: I've been collecting a few, since they're so inexpensive and so cool-looking. They are in varying degrees of repair....I can't wait to get out and play with mine soon. I hope to get something along these lines. :thumbsup:
Very cool. I keep looking and looking at box cameras (and other old cams) whenever at antique stores, but I haven't yet found one that I just had to have (or that I wanted to pay the price for). I really want one tho. And some of the cute little Brownie Specials I've seen, and lots of stuff really...
loverly pictures p bailey, man those camera are cool, you've really taken some wicked pictures with them!
I love them. The first is my favorite.
Is the lens supposed to do this? Or is it dirty, fungus, etc....
I like that first one. It reminds me of an old oil painting.
I am not sure why these photos turned out as they did. The lens looks OK. I think this camera was designed for glass plates ? Perhaps the slight difference in distance from lens to film creates the unusual photos. I will be shooting this again very soon. Results will be posted here.
For anyone looking to buy a box camera, E-Bay is the place to shop. They sell for $10 or less and are easy to repair if necessary.
