Annually, the last Sunday in April.
I forgot about it, but I did see a woman today with a couple of 8x10" pinhole cameras she had built out of 500-sheet paper boxes. She was photographing a young boy sitting on a rock near Chelsea Piers.
I shot four frames of 4x5 through a pinhole (waiting for processing), two frames of Polaroid Type 667 in my auto-exposure camera, and one exposure in my 9x24 cm anamorphic.
I shot a couple of 4X5s. One developed. Doesn't look too bad. I noticed one thing about it, I got detail in an area of this often photographed item that I have never been able to get with a lens. Weird.
I shot a roll of 120 6x9 FP4 in my flat topped Mamiya Super 23. Off to the lab Monday.
I remembered about 100miles from home and light was fast disappearing... maybe next year!
The last pinhole project I made (demonstrations for photo-classes not counting) was one with a Sinar, pushed AP 400 4x5 inch film and a Metz flash. It involved self portraits and was supposed to be printed really big (but didn't make it because of some FB paper problems...). It was in 1987 :-(
I guess that next year on the 30th of April would be a good moment for me to start pinhole photography again... maybe organize an event in Athens...
forgot in was WPPD, but i still managed 4 shots. 2 witha 6x6 folder, one 4x5, and one 8x10. i should pay more attention to the dates.....
I missed it last year but not this year.
Very, very cool.
My wife and I had the 6x9 Zero Image and the Wista with a temporary pinhole adaption out yesterday. I'll see what we have tonight. It was a nice motivator to be out in the sunshine, whatever the results.
I took two shots yesterday using JandC 8x10 pro 100 with my new cookie tin pinhole.
I hope to develop them tonight and print them tomorrow night.
My first year for WWPD, it won't be my last!
7x10 photo paper (Arista EDU.Ultra / Foma) in gallon paint can. f-280 pinhole in brass shim-stock plate.
This was first time doing pinhole photography specifically because it was WWPD. I modified a cheap plastic body cap for my Nikon FM2 (it is hideous looking) and shot off 2 rolls of Fuji Superia 400 speed film. I had a total blast! I will be doing this again next year.
My film is being sent out for processing.
I started pinhole photography as kind of a lark last year so this was my first chance to participate in WWPD. I'll post some more pinhole shots in gallery when I get a chance to get them scanned.
Not this year. I sent my finest pinhole camera to Donald and haven't made the next one yet. It is going to be a wooden cigar box camera with a 3x4 back on it for standard type 5 graphex film holders. I am thinking of using a Speedi-o-scope shutter system on the front end.
next year fer shure.

I finally was able to get my negative scanned. Here's my entry:
I'll definitely be doing this again next year. It was a lot of fun.
