sometimes.....


 I imagine myself inside my pinhole camera...

Driftwood pinhole, made with expired film, dunked in caffenol.

yes, I'm still here doing pinhole...


 A couple of pinhole test shots from Monday.

The upper right photo was made with a Zero Image multi format camera and Harman Direct Positve paper dunked in caffenol and the lower left one was made in an Ilford 4 x 5 obscura camera with harman paper as well.

My fixer was kaput, thus the pink tinge, so I had to refix to get them looking nice and presentable.


I really like having an almost instant photo using the Harman Direct Positive paper and caffenol.

These trees are handy models that live and pose in my back yard.

In a couple of months I'll be going to Russell Farms art center in Burleson, Texas (near Fort Worth) to do some pinhole work and then go back in November for a lecture and pop up show. It's always fun to do this type of thing and spread the pinhole fun!

what the heck is not going on....


 I don't think anyone checks in here too much anymore...heck, I don't even check in much and I live here...

Today I decided to dig out my old Holga Wide pinhole camera since I had seen some really nice images from one by Herschel Pollard on FB.

Herschel lives in Nashville and posted some cool scenes of ordinary places, which I really enjoy seeing.

Thus, my renewed interest in using my own Holga Wide pinhole.

Up above is a mushed together image that I shot in my back yard of some trees that tolerate me using them as models. Their fees are reasonable and they don't complain much, so here they are! 

Delta 100, sloshed in caffenol for about 8.5 minutes.

Faffing About

 

Putzed around the yard today with a cobbled together pinhole camera made out of an old "Exquisitos" cigar box with a "23" Graphic film back on it, which I promptly loaded a bit bass ackwards and ruined the first three frames. This nice Cedar had nothing better to do than let me make its portrait which I quite like after all that faffing around....

I met an old Bridge

 

The old Rio Puerco bridge on route 66.

Built in 1933.

Pinhole camera made out of Baltic Sea Driftwood by a guy named Sergey.

Unknown mystery film found in the desert then dunked in caffenol.

Black Sun and swoshy light arcs


 Little black sun in this one....made with a cut up priority mail shoe box with some added foam core.

I like making pinhole boxes out of scraps and stuff that would ordinarily go in the trash bin.
