Vintage cameras


Two vintage cameras that I have inherited at some time or other.

The first is a Kodak Brownie box camera, model SIX-20, which was probably manufactured between 1939 and 1943.

The other is a May Fair folding camera made by The Houghton-Butcher Manufacturing Co. Ltd. probably in about 1932.

Both were popular models and are fairly common.


Sewing Machine


Light painting an old Singer Sewing Machine. Twelve images again with an LED torch. Stacked in Photoshop and blended with Lighten.

I think this may work better with some sort of diffuser on the torch so will try to rig something up perhaps with tissue paper and a small tube over the end of the torch to prevent leak of backlight towards the camera.
