    new member. sharing some pictures

    Hi,

    Just wanted to share a couple of pictures I have re-photographed (badly) from a box of photographs I took ~2011.

    These are 35mm, developed and enlarged on my bedroom wall with a homemade enlarger. Before that I was using pinhole cameras, up to 8 x 10.

    Apologies for the poor reproduction quality.
    Looking forward to checking out the site and seeing others work.

    I might start scanning and uploading more images to the forum eventually.

    Welcome. I actually find the images rather interesting, particularly given the circumstances. Could you describe your homemade enlarger in some detail? Just curious.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    the enlarger was made from a spare lens I got given along with the camera (from a pawnbroker), it is difficult to describe, and there were many issues which meant it was constantly being repaired (heat particularly and diffusion of light).

    It was made of cardboard postal tube and tin cans and tape pretty much plus sanded pieces of hard plastic. I aimed it at the wall like a rifle, which meant the paper needed to be taped to the wall.

    great photographs!
    and sounds like your enlarger was as much a work of art as the photographs made from it !

    Very cool. The monkey skull shot is very grabby.

    Sounds like a successful MacGyver effort.

    I like your pictures; enigmatic and dreamy. Post more when you get a chance.

    +1 I'd love to see that homemade enlarger!

    Also that skull looks almost like a gorilla skull.
