Posted by rachelcreative on April 12, 2009
Here are the photos from the Box Brownie No 2 taken at 4am on 4th April 2009 in Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, UK.
Looking down towards Bore Street:
Empty market stalls outside the Heritage Centre:
Telephone boxes in Market Square:
The bus station:
An accidental double exposure at the train station:
From the upper car park at Lichfield City Train Station looking to the bus station beyond:
Lichfield City Train Station platform with an accidental double exposure as I thought there were more exposures on the film and half wound it on:
I used 120 Fuji Superia 100iso film, respooled (by me) for the Box Brownie and measuring exposures from shots with the Nikon D40 (very expensive for a light meter!).
Not having a spare plate for my tripod but needing long (10-16 second) exposures I rested the camera on the ground mainly. I also made use of a low wall by Minster Pool and an empty market stall in the Market Square. My assistant Paul used the stopwatch on his phone to help me time the exposures.
