Light Trails

I used an old 616 camera to shoot this, I am amazed that the camera can still take

shots!

 

About The Photo

*Camera: Kodak Junior Six-16 Series II *Lens: Kodak Anastigmat 126mm ƒ/6.3 *Shutter Speed: about 25Sec. *Aperture Value: ƒ/8 *ISO: 50 *Focal Length 126mm *Film Used: Ilford PanF 50 120mm black and white

The camera I used to take this photo was purchased around 1938 I think. My grandmother said she bought it in Hollywood California. This old camera takes 616 film which has not been produced for many years, so I used 120 film and used an old 616 spool to take up the film after each shot had been exposed. I used my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS to meter for each scene and figured out the exposure for the Kodak. I scanned this image on a cheap scanner, so sorry for the quality. I used Photoshop CS4 Extended to crop and do a little burning.
