I am very much into analog photography, and spending too much for twenty four grainy photos. Up to recently, I’ve only had one film camera that actually worked. Then I found a gem. Our neighbor had a collection of old cameras in his garage, and told us we could have them if we wanted. So we ran over immediately. We found many Brownie boxes, and a few 35mm cameras, but the shining glory of the experience was a No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie. And I found out it works! After reading up on it, I discovered it would take modern day 120mm film. Many folding autographics take retired film, so I was excited to try an experiment.
I purchased the film. This next part of the story is very interesting, and will definitely determine whether I discover an interesting art form, or end up with disappointing photos. I had to unwind the whole roll of film to get it in the camera the way you are supposed to. And I did it in dim light. So the whole roll is already exposed, and I’m worried about the results.
So if this roll doesn’t work out, I’ll probably try another. Anyway, it is a once in a lifetime chance to see the world through an old lens.
