Most of the Box Camera photos I have been posting on various sites are light challenged or double – multiple exposures. Here is a regular photograph, did a little extra contrast in computer, but does show capability of the Box Camera as snapshot sort of mechanism.
I have now visited the Hoover – Mason Trestle twice, and it is a wonderful vantage point from which to photograph the old Bethlehem Steel Furnaces. The photo here is an infrared photo I took during my first visit.
I just modified an old Kodak No. 2C Brownie to use 120 film, originally it took 130 film. Also cleaned the camera up a bit and did a minor repair or two, but not bad given that it is between 80 and 100 years old. Took it off to Steamtown yesterday and took a roll of pictures, in this case four. I have attached a multiple exposure I took of Engine 664 while on the turntable. This composition is totally done in the camera with contrast, dodging and burning done in digital processing after the negative was scanned.
I have been playing with old box cameras. This is an example of the results, a little tuning up with Lightroom, but otherwise, it is just film…
