This is the first really decent shot I’ve gotten out of the 1902 Century Studio No. 5 camera that I bought in Florida over Thanksgiving. I used a #Foldio 3 fold up studio with a black-ish backdrop and the included LED lighting to do this. I would have liked to get closer and have her fill more of the frame, but the camera only has so much bellows extension. This was shot with #ilforddirectpositivepaper at an ISO around 2, 5 seconds of exposure. It was probably underexposed at that, because it took several minutes to develop. I’m happy with this. The camera works.
