One of the things I love about film photography is the ability to easily create double exposures right in the camera. These two photo though were not created on purpose, but more of a happy accident.
I purchased two Russian rangefinder cameras on eBay and had not used them because I couldn’t figure them out or even how to load them. Finally, I took the time to research them online, got them loaded with film, then went out a shot a roll. This Smena 2 camera was the harder of the two. The advance dial is manual and there is not a counter to know how many pictures were shot or have left. It was a big mystery even though I watched a video on how to use the camera, but it was in Russian so I had to watch. I watched the guy turn the dial 8 times.
Throughout the roll, I took a photo then turned the dial 8 times. I don’t think it was enough because every shot was double exposed with an image on top of an image.
These are two photos I took around an abandoned building on the main drag of N Shepherd Drive in the heart of the city. I think they came out cool, so I am including them for today’s daily photo.
