First shot from the vintage 1902 Century No. 5 I bought in St. Augustine a couple of weeks ago. This is shot in my back yard on 5x7 Ilford Direct Positive paper, because I’m not set up yet to develop 5x7 film. I think the reason the left half is completely white is that the sheet fell out of the holder and into the camera when I reinserted the dark slide and fell ins funny shape that caused part of it to be completely overexposed when I retrieved the sheet. And it’s blurry because I wasn’t using a tripod for a roughly 3 second exposure. Even with all that, I love it.
I hope to get a better idea of what the lens can do with a couple of shots I took this afternoon.
