Back in January, I purchased a Superheadz Blackbird Fly camera. One roll of film made it through the camera, but when it came time to rewind the film I didn’t follow the full directions, and accidentally exposed it! I’ve been anxiously waiting to try it out again and see the end results. Today I got back the first three rolls I shot last week when I took visiting family members to Coney Island. I have to say, I’m in love!
The effect is very similar to lomo and holga cameras, but with less light leaks.
There are 3 different ways to take photos, seen here in this illustration from Holga Magic
I took half the photos with a mask on, and half with out. Unfortunately, the local developing place I went to couldn’t figure out how to print the photos with sprockets on their machine. So I’ll be having the best shots reprinted once I return to NYC next week. Here are some of my favorites:
