The folks from Canada and Australia both knew the term!
Yeah, but I got my knowledge from PBS re-broadcasts.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
I think those garbage men that used a giant dumpster to make huge pinhole photos were in England or Ireland? ( ...what do they call them these days? Sanitary engineers? Trash Technicians? Calling someone a "garbage man" is probably not acceptable any more... I was a janitor as a high school job and my position was called "custodial technician". )
WPPD is on my do-list. I have done one timid experiment with the Fuji Green X-ray film i bought, cutting it to use in my 4x5 camera to save chemistry. The plan is to shoot some 8x10 and make contact prints for the big day, but the preliminary testing has managed to fall behind for months, too many things trying to happen lately.
DW, I've been shooting about 15-20 sheets a week of the HR-T 30 Green. (8x10 cut down to 4x5) It's a tricky film, but I'm getting some good results. Let me know if you want any hints on taming this film. I'll definitely be loading some for WPPD.

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
* I'm an analogue enthusiast, trying not to fall into the digital abyss.
* My favorite cameras: Mamiya C330f, Nikon S2, Hasselblad SWC, Leica SL, Leica M7, Russian FKD 18x24, Bronica SQ-B and RF645, Rolleiflex T, Nikon F4s, Olympus Pen FT, Agfa Clack and my pinhole cameras.
I just made my first one ever! Today! Paint still drying...
Did I do the pinhole size calculation right? Anyone? The cardboard is 16x16x16 box but measured for internals it's ABOUT 15.75 (inches) from board to pinhole which is exactly 400.05mm... So is the pinhole size right? 0.739mm
