    Good because I just got home and have to sleep! So I'll try and scan and submit mid-day, if not, no big deal, I'm happy with my other entry.

    I use Fabriano Artistico for my gum prints - holds up so well to those multiple soakings. I've not heard of the F. Academia. I'll have to see if it's available in my little portion of the world.

    Both these are superb but I love the colours on the first - you're doing some great work with your camera.

    Rock Arch - the same spot I took my WPPD shot, but with the Titan this time.

    They are both gum prints, 8x10 pinhole negs.
    This has been a very inspiring MSA - looking forward to the next one!

    F. Artistico and F. Academia are different species, not to be confused with L. Aquarelle a different genus....

    Forgive me if this is a silly question, but did you presoak the paper with gelatine?

    There's a lot of steps to gum printing - I start with a hot soak to shrink the paper, then once it's dry I paint on a layer of gelatin and hardener. I've discovered it's pretty important to get it thin and even. If it is too thick, or uneven, the gum flakes off. I'll do a batch of paper ready for gumming. Once dry again, I'm ready to start applying the first layer of "gum emulsion". Another dry, expose, soak, pull when enough of the paint has floated off, dry, then the second layer.......I like this as a summer process, because I'm not shutting myself into the dark all day. (Who cares in the winter?) While prints are exposing, soaking, drying I can weed or water the garden, pop across the road for a dip in the river, or sit on the swing to eat my lunch and count the quail chicks. It's sssllloooowwwww, but we're all into slow photography, right?

    And that's the main gist why I like these alt-photo processes in the first place !!!

    OK!!! Ugh!!! Really wish I could make a contact print, these 11x14's are rough to deal with digitally haha, but anyway basically a straight scan, image from the APUG Beach Party here in Connecticut, USA where I got to meet some of you guys in person! Whoot!! I "impressed" everyone with my cardboard box pinhole camera, and got to take this image

    First time using a film holder for the 11x14 and so there was some light leak, pretty sure it's an issue with the actual camera than the holder, and I'm now working on making a new camera from scratch anyway.

    OK without further Ado!

    11x14 X-Ray Pinhole of all of our cameras, interestingly enough, I didn't realize how red-sensative(Or IR sensitive?) this film was, I don't believe any of the dark cloths were white, I think they were all black... very odd... (surprising) not a great picture but glad to submit it, since it's pinhole and all.

    Hi Stone,
    Nice entry and a pinhole as well! Bonus points with Ned for sure! And surely fitting the theme: Near and Far merged together by the almost indefinite DOF of pinhole. Nice interpretation of the theme.

    I'm guessing you made the shot right into the sun, so I'm not sure if it's a light leak or just original "pinhole flare" on the right side of the image. It suits this image either way, so don't worry about it. It's pinhole: the imperfect perfect (or was it the other way around?)

    @Ned: this is most likely the last entry in this MSA. You gave us a very nice theme, inspiring us to very different interpretations. The essence of the MSA, isn't it? Can't wait to see which image will be the winner....
