    Just another bump to see some images! As you can tell, I'm interested.

    Hi all,

    Apologies for the long time away - I gave up on photography for several months, in part due to the fact that the library lost 15 of my cyanotypes following an exhibition (that I had shot specially for the library) and partly due to other things. Anyway, at the weekend I finally painted the interior of the camera flat black - I used a gouache paint mixed with a tiny amount of water (Lamp Black was the colour).

    And then... drum roll please... I couldn't resist taking the first picture with it!

    No, I know the subject is pretty dull but it is the first picture from my sliding box camera and I developed the 9x12 sheet film in Caffenol so it's very grainy. But here it is...



    and here is a crop...



    Excuse all the development marks, I was being impatient! Which is ironic really after putting the camera into the back of a wardrobe for several months!

    Hi Jon,

    No problems with light leaks as far as I can tell, although there is good overlap between the two boxes.

    I waxed the exterior of the camera, and the two boxes now slide in and out very smoothly. It still looks a bit daft with that lens on it though, it needs a brass lens ;0)

    David.

    David,

    I'm glad to see the first image! It looks like you have a functional camera. Great job!

    I have started to plan my own. If I get anywhere, I'll post some images of it here.

    Too bad about your cyanotypes. Maybe someone is still enjoying them, although they should return them!
