The Brownie Special Six-16

 


I found this camera at my mother-in-laws house while helping to clean out her shed last year. Needless to say I was super excited about it and I promised her I would give it a good home. It wasn't until recently that I actually looked up how to modify it to work with 120 film (since the 616 film it was originally designed for is no longer manufactured). Today I finally got my first roll of film developed. This form of photography (or Lomography as it is called) is highly experimental, you can't really think about what your shooting, and there's no instant gratification viewing of your shot as in a digital camera. And because you have to manually advance your film there are a lot of opportunities to double expose images on a single frame. The results are something that is both beautiful and unique. I can't wait to buy some more film and take some more shots.
