View Full Version : Antique camera photo question
24th of July 2002 (Wed), 12:04
Hi, I have a question for all you photo genius' on this board. I am wanting to take a picture of an antique Kodak camera for a photo contest I'm entering, but what type of picture should I take? Black and white? Sepia? what should I set the camera on and what type of background would suit it? I basically want to show an old camera (1925) photographed by a new digital. How it used to be to how it is now. Thanks for any info,

Here are a few ideas to start with:
- cover it with dust, put it to a dusty corner and light it with a flashlight as you just found it from attic.
- take a closeup photo so you see the patina and detail
- I've seen this used: have a new big modern lens next to the old camera.
- Find a pile of photos taken with it (from same era) and place the camera over them. Use dim lighting and (artificial) vignetting on lens.
- Make it part of other stuff from same era, like in
- find the oldest looking granny you can find and let her hold the camera (shoot perhaps only pergament skin hands holding the camera)

I like a sepia tone photo.. also be sure to put it over a lace doily or something.

Hey danonbc, any chance you can let the rest of us in on where to find out more info about that photo contest? I realize it may create more competition, but if you don't mind I'd like to enter too!
