OK, calling all pinheads.
Thanks for the reminder! I'll get going with something.
I know exactly what I want to photograph... Let's just hope everything comes together in my favour!
I've been making a list and checking it twice. So far the 10 day forecast for this area sounds like it will be chilly but low probability of precipitation. I look forward to that, as I think past history has been about one out of five or six WPPDs has been nice weather.
I think that I will go only part way. I plan on using my single frame Tessina L.
Looking forward to my first participation.
I have to figure out what to photograph, first have to finish the camera.
Got it all lined up, pinhole camera loaded and ready to rip.
I think it will be a rainforest shoot with a nude. Just got to guard against goosepimples...
I was hunting locations earlier this week and decided to go for an entirely new reagon to help with the internal WOW factor for my pinhole image.
Although I do admit I have tried to get some of my friends to dress up like Zombies (not panning out Yet, bummer) Pinhole Zombies just sounds great, expecially with a few flags stuck in the ground and a sign that say Polling Place / Vote Here. (insert your own worst politition name for the buttons the Zombies wear)
Nude in Geelong in late April? - No photograph's production can justify that kind of sadism
Don't think I want to see your self portrait.
Well that was fun... I'll develop my one and only shot tonight, with fingers crossed!
I wandered around Hawthorn, and exposed six sheets... Will process this evening and do what SteveR's doing (crossing fingers)
It happened and WPPD was exhausting - I made mine by first light and Rae just managed to get one from the front porch between lighting the fire to cook dinner and starting to cook
The village kids did their pinhole pix between showers in the can-meras they made for last year's pinhole day - The group results will be/are at the WPPD site under groups, Starr.Quinninup
Not a day for Poisson Du Jour's planned nudes here - Wet and rainy most of the day
Spent the day doing a pinhole session with 15 kids ranging from 6yo to 11yo. Very tiring day..but fun
This past week my classes i teach revolved around the camera obscura, with a bit of history, videos, and construction, and testing of different types. It concluded with loading up some paper into tins for pinhole photography this coming week. Should be fun and interesting even though it's not going to be done officially today on Sunday. Hope everyone gets some cool results!
We just got back from taking our little guy to the hospital earlier this evening, and I've got a 4am start... So I don't think I'll be getting my contribution developed tonight!
Took the Zero Image to a number of old cabins and barns. Shot some at 6x9 in B&W and a roll of Ektar at 6X6. Missed the # 1 on the Ektar load so only shot 11 of the 12 in color. Hope to see what they look like soon.
A change of plans saw me and the trusty Zero Image 6x9 (as 6x6) take an up-close-and-personal view of what I now regard as a haunted 1890s ruined home it has to be haunted for a ruined door to close shut without it being touched! I fumbled with the first exposure in a musty, but artfully surrealist-painted room while the remains of a fire smoked in a nearby room, eventually lining up, metering making three shots before skidaddling out of the place to photograph less troubling subjects around outside the house, like an unusual wattle-and-daub stables with the corpses of rodents hanging from the ceiling. Roll isn't finished yet but should fix that this week.
Took the F3 Pinhole Device For A Stroll Around The Block.
Took the ZeroImage 612F out today on a walk around downtown Calgary. Last shot was of my wife's cappuccino and with Velvia 50 it took 3.5 minutes to expose. The coffee got gold, but the wife didn't complain, she's the best!
I shot a trio of images in my backyard in the morning light. F280 plywood 4x5 pinhole camera, preflashed grade 2 paper negatives, scanned and inverted + tonal adjustment in PS. 35 second exposure.

LOL! Good point.
Myself and friend were rugged up to the hilt never mind about the "planned nudes" (next Spring, maybe!); the temperature dropped sharply around lunch time so we didn't hang around outside after that, retreating to an eatery to thaw out! We didn't move until 3.30pm!
After not nailing our shots on Direct Positive with the Harman Titan ( 4 fogged sheets, wrong safelight? ), my wife and I shot a few sheets of Delta 100 on a shot for hand made Mother's Day cards, I'll scan a print in tomorrow.
Three of my wandering efforts from yesterday: Harman Titan f/206 at 1 minute, Kodak TXP320 in Rodinal 1:25
They look good Joe, only a 35s exposure though? That must be some pretty fast paper you used for the negs!
