Week 10 Symmetry

These cameras were one of the first ever compact cameras, widely used in WW1 by both American and British troops in the trenches, so much so that nearly every image from the front would have been taken by someone using one of these.
My set up for this shot was pretty basic, I used a torch from above to light the image so I could avoid any light spreading to the background, the camera was sitting on a black tile. Although using spot metering I still had to use -1.7 exposure compensation to get the light right. I turned the image B&W although there really wasn't much colour in the image in the first place just to give a slightly cleaner look.
