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
