Vintage Radio Photo Shoot, part two

After my dad helped me fix up my 1920s 4x5" camera,
we did a few more fun shots with his vintage radio collection:

The shots you see here are the direct positive from the negative... in other words, I use this film

to take a photo, and the result is BOTH a polaroid (positive print) and a negative! And the negative isn't enlarged at all - so what you see here is (roughly, depending on screen size I guess) the size of the negative.

It is also filled with the dust of nearly 100 years so it has quite a cool, old look to it - and they are really neat to do for engagement and wedding photos (well, portraits of any kind)!

Super fun, a little finnicky though.
