Afghan Box Camera

I've spent a couple of very busy months on building and testing my Afghan Box Camera, a sort of "instant camera" from the past. The camera is basically a light proof box where, besides working as a camera, it also works as a darkroom. That's because all the  image processing is made inside the camera soon after the shot it's been taken. For this, a tray with a developer and fixer is placed inside so the photographic paper can be processed.

I've followed the brilliant work of Lukas Birk and Sean Foley from the Afghan Box Camera. If you're interested on more about this sort of cameras I highly recommend checking out the site. I've also built a Tumblr page where I've been posting all stuff related to my project: lambemovel.tumblr.com/

And here are some of the test I've made so far...
