    Second try is drying! it seems a lot more even but still is unsharp, and I went through the process of completely re-doing the "lens" (hole) and sanding and measuring etc.

    Well I think this will be my final entry.

    It takes me a long time to do this for just one image but it was totally worth it, however I think I'll have to wait until I can get a real lens (and camera) that covers 11x14...

    Also stripping the neg is a pain, it's hard to get even development on both sides so you have to strip the side that's against the tube wall.

    I do kinda like that the corners are missing, gives it that "custom made" look, but it's uneven.

    I had a mishap and one of the sheets fell out of the "holder" so I wasted one (plus travel to a spot to shoot it) and then re-designed the holder to grab more of the edge for the second shot.

    This whole MSA has been a learning experience in design and given me a new respect for camera makers and photographers from 100 years ago.

    I also totally realized mid way through development that I never heated up the development to temperature so I measured it, and it was at 60 degrees Fahrenheit (instead of my normal 68, so at 6 minutes I dumped and added 225ml (which is all the tank holds) for another 3 minute run (total of 9 minutes at 60 degrees Rodinal 1:50).

    It was an estimation of the difference in temperature and the action on the developer. It looks like I guesstimated pretty well (I think...?).

    MSA submission number 3.2

    The official 3rd submission never happened, the piece of film fell out in the camera and never exposed, so this is v3.2

    Snow White... This is the larger version, smaller is in the Gallery with more details, scanned in 4 parts and merged together in photoshop but no major adjustments were made to the photo.

    Meet Red Rooster Cam and Goat Rock Cam, two of my favorite pinhole cameras. Sorry they were not constructed just for MSA. Taylor Maid Farms is a favorite coffee roasting company here in Sonoma County, California. I actually roast my own coffee, but friends are happy to save these for me.

    These cans are great for pinhole because there is a lip inside the rim to hold a 5x7 paper negative perfectly. The lip also supports a black paper insert as a light seal. I think they are light tight, but I put a small piece of aluminum foil on top as a failsafe, which also indicates they are loaded. The pinholes were made from drink can aluminum, and the shutters are tape. Red Rooster Cam has built in "rise", and if you want "fall" just turn it upside-down! Both are spray painted flat black inside, and I usually use "pearl" paper to reduce reflections. GRC has a distictive blockage on one end, RRC has a shiny spot that makes a flare on the right side of every picture... these are part of the "character" of the cameras and I like them as they are.

    You can see a few more photos from the cameras here: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/295785/album/357355

    We are having an unusually dry winter, so the first MSA picture is a reservoir where I often walk the dog. I have never seen it this low. The camera location is usually under more than 15 feet of water!

    Here is RRC making the MSA photo a week ago:

    And here are the results. The first is a contact print and the second is a neg scan:

    Ned - that is extremely cool. Do you have a reference that explains how to build one of those?

    Hi Ned,
    Great images both! After looking at both for a while I decided I like the second one best, for the composition of the trees.
    You're a fine ambassador for pinhole photography!

    Wow Ned! Those are gorgeous! The oaks especially. As always your pinhole images are inspirational.

    Here's a couple more of mine from Maui:

    Hatchetman, very simple ( and very fun too! ) I'll write a short thread about it in the pinhole forum and send you the link.

    Thanks Bert!! I'd say you do very well in that regard too!

    Sly, I know kiawe trees very well... and so do my feet. The thorns have no trouble going through flip-flops or thin-soled sneakers. My dad and I used to go diving at Makena when it was still on a dirt road and you had to walk through the kiawe forests to get to the beach. I think the 2nd one would make a perfect 11x14 print!
