The seedy side of the 5 corners.
YOU NEED TO VIEW THIS AT THE ORIGINAL SIZE
So, I decided I would like to expose one continual length of film, unspliced, of a section of storefront.
I shot this with my brownie six-16, loaded with 35mm film. By placing a clicker on the canister to count the sprocket holes, I was able to advance the film to the next frame with just a fraction of overlap. This being the trial run, there a few errors:
1) My viewfinder does not work, (though I doubt the accuracy of the viewfinder would have helped, had it been working.) This being the first time I've tried accurate shooting with this camera, the field-of-view for this camera was not entirely known. I basically lined up the film-plane edges with the lens to get a rough composition. Having taken notes for these exposures I should be able to return to my original locations and back-calculate the field of view and put down a template on the side of the camera to mark some sight-lines.
2) a couple of times I overshot the sprocket count and had to splice the separate scans. These are pretty messy and you can pick them out by the discrepancy in the frame #'s.
3) I haven't figured out how to scan an entire roll of 35mm film without cutting it. If you know how, please tell me!! I would love to keep the film intact to view backlit, for example.
I'm sure I could make this project easier on myself by using a camera with a working viewfinder, more than two apertures and one shutter speed, but I think that's the fun in it.
