One of my first attempts at the homemade lens thing... nothing too exciting, but it actually worked! Done by stacking a few things that shouldn't work, but work well together! I'll mess around a bit now that I know I can get an image (most combinations yielded nothing but blur). The camera body was a Banner (Diana clone).
And this shot was achieved by just holding a lens in front of the (lenseless) barrel with my hand. Again, not too interesting as a photo, but the idea merits some future experimentation.
Found out a bit more about the Lark camera (see last week's post) from a friend on toycamera.com. Made around 1939, 3x4cm format on 127 film. Valued at $25-$40 US. Pretty funky looking camera...looks like something that should have been made 15 years earlier. I'll take some shots with it later this week.
