Deer Pinhole

'tis the season....
for good tidings, snow, sub freezing weather and the seasonal goodie aisle at the big box store everyone loves to hate.
Yep, Wally World!

I go there.  I don't like going, but sometimes I must...and sometimes I hit the jackpot because lately ol Wally has been selling pinhole cameras disguised as Hot chocolate containers.

Yeah!  This is my score form the other day.



The tin is large enough to comfortably use a 5 x 7 piece of photo paper ...which is nice because I won't need to trim paper to load it!
It's about 3-3/4 inches in diameter and that's nice too!
I already painted the inside black...it just needs a pinhole and some paper, so over the holidays I hope to try it out.
to be continued......

Calling Jesus

Sometimes you are driving around, minding your own business and then see something that deserves a closer look...This is a plastic Jesus statue someone left behind in an old phone station.

Zero Image 2000 with Kodak Ektar 100
I think Ektar 100 is just about the best color film you can use for pinhole.  The color shift is not too severe....


As you've probably guessed, this is from this past summer when things were green and flowers blooming..

Rest Stop Hwy 60



A brief Rest Stop on Hwy 60 near the little salt flats....a cold, dreary day for pinhole.

The Moon did this..

and so did Aldebaran...left this streak on my little pinhole camera loaded with a strip of film last month.  I caught it just right...not easy, but easy you know.


9 hours of exposure...or about...I was sleeping thorough it all.

Matchbox pinhole fun



Yes, it's been awhile...


This one is from a little homemade matchbox pinhole camera that I keep in my truck and use randomly, which is kind of fun because by the time I got to the end of the roll, I had no idea what was on the beginning of it.

This shot, I believe, was made in Texas during one of my road trips back home.  I know it's not around here because the terrain is too flat!

The film was expired Agfa, (remember Agfa?) that a friend gave me several years ago.  I like the film. It renders well for pinhole work, but I don't like the curl it has because that makes it a bit more finicky to scan...
My favorite film to use in the matchbox pinhole is Delta 100, which I will be re-loading back in the matchbox cam soon!

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying some nice Fall weather.  The Aspens are golden in this part of the world!

Black Mesa State Park

What is it about trees?
I just can't seem to stop making pinhole photos of them. Trees are good sitters...being still and all.

Pinhole camera made from Newman's own mint tin, the Ginger Dragon one if I recall correctly.
Paper negative sloshed around in caffenol.
