She shoots film, she plays around with manual cameras with great ease, she makes her own lenses, straps, lens babies, she shoots the stars, she scans film without a film scanner, she shoots pinhole, she makes freaky bicycle lights, she shatters huge wooden doors to pull out the keyhole lens to make her own fisheye lens! and yes, she makes her own cameras as well.
