Do you use a real old camera to make real photos at living history events!
Share the result here!

I have a lovely little VPC from about 1915 but I'm still trying to work out all the best settings to get good photos. Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey for film and developing so it's taking a while. If anyone knows of an instruction leaflet that would be great.

A local shop sells old film sizes, more than once I have walked around events with a box brownie, no one thinks it has film in so pull some ridiculous poses, some of which cause embarrassment when the film is developed, a fiver for a camera, about 8 for film, and only a few shots so make them count, but u can get surprising results
