American Civil War Soldiers

Taken with a Zenit FS-12 Fotosniper camera in week 87 of my 52 film cameras in 52 weeks project:

The Fotosniper outfit consists of a Zenit SLR with a 300mm telephoto lens, which is attached to a rifle like mount with a trigger to fire the shutter.

When I developed the film, it was immediately obvious that the horizontal focal plane shutter does not run smoothly, resulting in bands of over or under exposure across the negatives. I have attempted to apply some correction in Photoshop to reduce the impact on the final photos.

 

The first year of the project is documented in this book:
