    Year long pinhole exposure of Toronto

    Did anyone on here see the news story about the freelancer (age 31) who shot a 365 day exposure of the Toronto skyline? Reading it, the photographer mentions using a photo sensitive paper and not chemically developing it. I understand the latter part somewhat, but I would think he'd be able to at least fix the image as is. Does anyone know the logistics of doing an exposure like this? I am assuming he's using a paper made for enlarging slides? Maybe a very special emulsion paper? At any rate, the image was pretty sweet and reminds me again of the inabilities of digital photography versus film/paper shooting. Even with the Photoshop tools, a CCD sensor could not create art like this.

    Check it out in the article:

    He made a lumen print. Probably normal photo paper, expose long enough and the image prints out, as opposed to developing out. Fixing will destroy most images made this way, so a quick copy is made to preserve it. Try one, very easy to do, lots of fun as well.

    I think color paper will work, but the image won't be in color. On the other hand b&w paper used this way often has a color to it, but neither paper will have color corresponding to subject color.

    These are commonly called Solargrams. A few have been posted here previously that were one year exposures.

    Yeah, I wasn't trying to get color but more concerned about the image being positive.

    Mike, it's possible that the paper used for lightjet might work for this. I've been meaning to check with John Stubblefield in Charlottesville to see if he has any to donate....
