My First Real Picture


For my first time taking the Speed Graphic out to make a real photo, we went to Forest Park to find a good location. There was a traveling sculpture exhibit installed, and they looked neat.

Since I was still learning how to use the camera, I used a tripod and the ground glass to compose the shot. I knew how to do that from watching dad use his view camera when I was a teenager.

You can see Kellee there in those crazy coils, and if you look closely you might be able to see the dachshunds.

This was made on that super-old 4×5 Polaroid film and naturally made a cool look that people pay extra to do with Photoshop.
