Ghost in the lens


Series: Vintage Camera's    Caddelle

Part of greater series: The Capturing of the Light


I have been collecting these cameras for awhile with the sole purpose of photographing them, they have wonderful lines and mechanics.  It almost has a Steampunk feel  but these cameras were functional pieces of history that captured people's memories.


The technique I used is "Painting with light".  I used a candle and a small LED torch

Through the use of long exposure, F32 and held the shutter open by hand.  I felt the time.  This came from my job as a bromide camera operator.  I painted light to get a pure photograph.

This can be seen in the lens to give a ghostly image of light.  A single photograph without any Photoshop.

Available in the following formats


Glass print

Giclee canvas Print
