camera:  Recesky DIY TLR
film:  expired Fuji Superia 200 

just got my photos back from my tuesday shoot with a model…and WOW.  this photo was taken for shits n giggles, and is separate from the project…but i want to post it because…LOOK AT IT!  haha.  i will post the series later today or tomorrow after i arrange them.  it’s a photo narrative.

camera:  Byclops
film:  expired ISO 200 35mm 
flash:  blue + red + yellow [triple exposure] 

this would look really nice mounted on a canvas.  to get this shot, i climbed a tree, held my camera up in the air, and snapped the shutter open.  i didn’t realize it would turn out this cool.

camera:  byclops
film:  expired ISO 200 35mm  

these are the first 8 shots off my first roll from the Byclops.  i think its the camera taking its first few baby steps until finally forming its first [half] photo.  all these shots are “accidents”…but theres a sort of abstract charm to these photos.  thats why i’ve decided to upload them to here.

got the prints back from my camera that i just built.  the film was loose on the spool, so i was very afraid that the photos wouldn’t come out.  i’m curious what that overexposed area on the right is though…i feel like its either the pressure i put on the back of the camera [since the film was loose], or some of the wiring i added for the flash.

…regardless, for a first roll of film, these photos came out really nice and i can see the potential in it.

camera:  Byclops [recesky DIY TLR, with some modifications]
flash:  vivitar 252 + color gels
film:  off-brand 200 ISO color 35mm 

FINALLY FINISHED MY CAMERA!!!  i am naming it “The Byclops”…after the greek mythological figure born with the hideous deformity of having two eyes.  this is a work of art, if i do say so myself.  the kit came with some crappy parts, so i cut and sanded down some material i found lying around the house…like a glass mirror from a make-up kit, a transparent memory card case, and the old thrift store cameras from previous posts.  …also notice in the upper-right corner:  COLOR GELS…meaning i can tint the color of the flash.  i can’t wait to use this camera. 

the best part about the camera itself though…is that its 35mm, meaning i get more shots than if i were using 120mm film…and it does double exposures.  which is fun to play around with. [see my cinco de mayo post]
