Hello creative folks,
You can read all about it and see the images of the “konstruction” of it right here: A Photographer’s Baggage . “Konstrukting” the Konstruktor
Today I would like to share the first roll of film with it.
I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I knew I had followed all the right steps and the camera felt good on my hands every time I pressed the shutter button. But still, it’s a plastic SLR camera and I could imagine all sorts of things going wrong like beams of light entering through some small slit I had failed to notice and the photos being all ruined.
But no, that didn’t happen and I was very pleased with the result. The photos have an incredible plasticity and a sense of time.
They have the feel of a pinhole camera, a vary ancient camera, or a roll of film that had passed its prime.
But see it for yourself and tell me what you think about it. And while you are at it, have you ever photographed with a Konstruktor? How was it?
