Maxi got me an Ilford Sportsman for my birthday, and I put some red negative film into it. The camera is pretty old, and doesnt seem to wind on properly. The great thing about this is it creates some wonderful double exposures and beautiful compositions. I love the random nature of using these old cameras...
Mutoscopes are those old machines you used to get where you put a coin into a machine and turned a handle to see a series of pictures in sequence. As part of a uni project we had to find a way to present 50 photographs we had taken. Instead of making a book or poster I wanted to make something 3D.
Its quite fun to swoosh around and end up with a random photo.
When my parents lived in Russia they bought this camera, a cheap plastic CMEHA Smena. It leaks light, is impossible to gauge how many photos are left on the reel and is awkward to use. I love it, and took it out to the woods. Really love the double exposures and errors it creates...
