    Attended a pinhole workshop today, built a camera from a wine box. Here's the picture I submitted to pinholeday.org

    I took out a newly built 8x10 -- so new it still smells of varnish! I fear I really cut this one down to the wire. At the end I was fighting sunset trying to do a quick test yesterday, but cobbled together as much info as I could. Today I set out for destination #1 (Lock Ridge Furnace in Alburtis, PA) with my entire inventory of two 8x10 filmholders loaded with Arista EDU #2 grade RC paper. I also took my previous creation, a 4x5 and a few holders loaded with that paper, plus some Arista Ultra 100 film.

    The plan was that destination #2 was in the opposite direction from my house, so I came home to develop the 8x10s and see what I got, figuring to adjust and try again if need be. To my pleasant surprise, all four 8x10 shots look promising (they are washing as I e-speak) so I've decided to call it a day, as the sudden onrush of spring is producing lots of yard work.

    I will next develop the four 4x5 films with some trepidation. The f-stops of the two cameras are different, and film has a significant reciprocity failure so I have these tables ... I also have a Sekonic L-508 that can deal with two ISO settings. Alas, I think I may have made every possible permutation of wrong table columns/wrong ISO measurement. But I view pinhole as a sort of loose process anyway, so we'll just forge ahead. Since the paper negatives look decent, I'll not worry about the film.

    Heartwarming, the first sight that greeted me as I approached this historic site was a guy with an Arca Swiss monorail measuring away with a Sekonic spot meter. He was shooting B&W and impressed with my pinhole monster. We had a good chat, and I mentioned APUG. There was also a group of folks exercising cameras on a model, using the old stone ruins as a backdrop. I imagine they were electrocuting defenseless bits, but the place was busy.

    When I get the stuff dry enough to scan, I'll post one or two somewhere here.

    It was a lovely day with lots of sunshine. I took a walk of about 3 hours shooting flowers, trees, fields,
    a small creek and some sheep. Since it was all outdated colour film, I can't develop it myself.
    I'll send it off this week and will post some images later.

    Hi Dave,
    I took a peek at your camera on your site and it looks great! I especially like the cone shaped front. Can't wait to see your images.

    Just tray-developed 2 sheets of 5x4 Foma 200 in APH09 1:50, shot in my Zero45
    Took me "n" minutes to realise my darkroom timer had stopped working, so I guesstimated the time. Annoying but it was sort of OK in the end

    One well exposed and properly developed, the other I now realise I made a complete cock of, incorrectly calculating the exposure+reciprocity and so is grossly underexposed. Very thin, very annoying, Pity as it what is there looks as if it should have been quite pleasing.

    I'm on the West coast of the US, so it's only about half over. Like Dave I had two destinations in mind... had a wonderful morning, came home developed the 3 papers and they are hanging to dry. One looks very good. Pre-flashed some more paper and have all three cameras loaded and ready to go out again... my daughter is going with me this time and we should have fun. Will write more later, meanwhile off to more pinholing!

    Edit: the three papers are 5x7, 8x10 and 11x14...t hey look neat hanging to dry all in row from small to large!

    I "finished" my foamcore 8x10 in time to test it last Wed and got two reasonably decent shots with it, so I used it today. But, it was raining and pretty cloudy. I don't have a clue if they will come out 'cause I won't be able to develop them until Wed, but I'll keep my fingers crossed until then. If I have a chance, I might try to do something with my 4x5 one tonight. The clouds are clearing off, I think, so I might have a chance with some old Tri-X I have loaded. I used some older Arista ortho lith film with the 8x10.

    I shot a roll of Fuji Acros with my converted Brownie today in NYC with the B&H group. Won't have the results until later in the week, though.

    Well, the day's results are up in my PBase gallery. I feel as though I'm still not quite where I want to be in the world of paper negatives, but the results were better than last year. Those are inverted scans, when I get some time (and a suitable piece of glass!) I want to try contact printing a couple of them.

    It was a wet day, so I made do with a 5 and 1/2 hour indoor exposure, on X-ray film.
