Living Room Still-Life: 1962

Living Room Still-Life: 1962

My mother, watching TV in our living room. Taken with a c.1935 Kodak Junior Six-16 we happened to have sitting around the house. At the time I was chafing at the restrictions of the simple cameras I'd been using, specifically the inability to do long exposures in low-light situations. In addition to the "T" time exposure setting, the Six-16, like many older cameras, also had a "B" (for "Bulb") setting for use with flash; the shutter would stay open for as long as you held the release button down. While it was down, you set off your flash bulb. View full size.

Kodak Junior Six-16

I have one of these cameras in my collection. I'm glad to see this photo -- since they don't make 616 film anymore, and I'm not all that excited about the idea of tracking down some 70mm film, cutting it, and winding it onto the spools I have, my Junior Six-16 will have to be content to sit on the shelf.
