My wife has started a small collection of old camera’s for me. I have wanted to photograph them for a while now, but never really tried. A few weeks ago we found an old Kodak Junior Six-16 Series II w/original case at a local antique store. The front of this camera really caught my attention, so this evening I decided to set a small table and take a few shots. It took me more time than I thought it would to find a composition I liked, but finally was able to lock in on it. Once I had the composition I was looking for, I locked the camera down on the tripod and shot away.
I knew when I was shooting, that I wanted to process the image to give it an old look. After some basic processing in Lightroom, I pulled the image Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex Pro to finish it up. I added some grain, the border and a tad bit of over sharpening in Photoshop, and then use Nik for the B&W conversion. The results are below:
