back from the wild, wild west...

I'm back from an 8 day trip to Texas.   True, Texas has parts that are still wild and woolly, but for the most part it's very civilized.  maybe too civilized.
Anyway, I took a bag of pinhole cameras with me and some packs of film and cut photo paper and made so many pinhole photos it'd make your ass hurt!

The interesting or maybe not so interesting part of taking a bag of pinhole cameras on a long road trip is that I only used 3 of them.

Two of them were standouts in the field, so I'm probably going to "cull the herd" so to speak and will only use 2 or 3 for the remainder of the least when I travel because they were the easiest to use.

One was a special edition pinhole I made on the road and I'll talk  more about it later too!
A couple of the boxes that I love to use around here, just didn't cut the mustard on the road.

I took a lot of images and will start dunking and dipping and marinating in caffenol sometime this week so check back in a day or two to see what I've rustled up.

Oh, and I made my first pinhole portrait that wasn't of me!

I made myself a few rules for making pinhole images and stuck to them.

One of which was to not make a pinhole image of a person unless I had engaged them in conversation, and man, let me tell you, my first person was a doozy!
More on that later!

  1. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your camera decision, and seeing some images. Myself, I have an entire storage bin full of old pinhole cameras that, while unique, are less efficient or optimal than my favorite ones.
