    Hi All,

    I would like to introduce myself:
    - mixed analog/digital: my enlarger only goes up to 6X9, so to print my 6X12 negatives at decent costs I have bought a scanner. And even some 6X6 B&W work is done via scanning/lab print...
    - Sharpness: because I have been working with pinhole the last few years, "sharpness" has become less and less important :smile:
    - cameras: only occasionally I use lens cameras nowadays, Rollei35 and Roleicrod Vb are in use. Most pictures I take for 'serious' photography are with an array of pinhole cameras, homebuilt (6X6 and 6X9, in various focal distances) and bought commercially. Best camera's, in random order: my homemade Agfa 6X6 30mm pinhole, the 8banners 'Mb', and the fabuous crazy pinhole blender with three holes.

    Color or B&W: both! Different moods, different subjects ask for color or grey tones. Both can deliver beautiful and/or interesting images.

    My work is all over the f295.org forum, and in my own little website at
    www.xs4all.nl/~dkalkhov, which clearly needs an update.
    But hey, I have only recently switched over to a modern OSX apple, so now I can refurbish it, when the time is at hand...

    Greetings,
    Danny

    Good to see someone actually making his own pinhole cameras. Glad you showed up!

    Welcome Danny!

    I've been getting more and more into pinhole cameras myself. I love my little 120 pinhole blender although I'll probably need to buy another as it got pretty banged up on my last trip.

    Welcome from the Philadelphia, PA USA area. I've been known to dabble in the pinhole arts myself. :D
