Pretty much every time I shoot with a new medium I do just about everything to cock it up! At least this time I actually managed to get the spools to take...  

This experimental shoot was of the ancient camera variety. I have inherited a few cool box brownies and folding cameras over the years so I figured this was a good enough excuse to test with Meike before she was sent back to Holland.

I modified a few rolls to fit in the 620 format cameras, so some of the negatives got crushed up in the winding. One of the brownies was so old the mirrors were completely useless so I wasn't sure at all how I was composing the image. In all honesty, I wasn't planning on double (or triple) exposing but after I realised I had done it a few times, I carried on. I also scanned the medium format in on my document scanner because I am too impatient for my flatbed scanner to arrive.  So please, excuse the mess.
