An Artists Communion Through A Lens

Back To The Future

My recent film adventure at J.C. Raulston Arboretum with two vintage Kodak cameras yielded one good image.

The 1915 No. 1 Kodak Autographic Jr. has a big light leak which I don’t think I can fix.

  The box Brownie works well, when I remember to advance the film.  It’s tripod mount is the same as a 2017 camera.

1925 No. 2 Kodak Brownie Model F with 120 Kodak TMAX 100, at about 1/30th second and f32

  1. Damn – film photography is an incredibly delicate artform!
    Any advice for someone who is starting out in film?
    I’ve been doing digital for awhile now, but I think it is important to understand the art behind photography!

    • When I teach, it’s the exposure rectangle: Light, ISO, Shutter and Aperture. That’s all you need to understand for a good exposure. Film & Digital are mostly the same. My digital cameras come out of the box and get set to M. Histogram is 21st century light meter. I set film exposure with it.
