    Pinhole Images

    Thought I'd post some pinhole images taken with an f/179 wide-angle camera on Efke 25, processes in D76 1:1 for 5 minutes in tubes with constant agitation. The images were then scanned in Silverfast as B&W negative with some settings tweaked. (Next time, I'll scan them as positives and reverse.) Comments welcome.

    They are pretty sharp for a pinhole - is it homebrew or commercial? I love the sky in these too, it has a really ethereal quality that you can only really get with a pinhole.

    I especially like the one of the statue. The composition seems well balanced and natural. The sky looks just right. Was this medium format, or large format?

    I like the images very much, but the method of switching slides is distracting. It wouldn't take long looking at the site to get a headache.

    Thanks to all for the generous replies. To answer the questions posted, these were taken with a store-bought devoted pinhole camera, made of wood with a tripod mount. The photos were taken on a tripod, large format (4x5), on Efke 25.

    these pictures are gorgeous. If I didn't know better I'd say they were taken with some top of the line large format equipment. I may have to try some pinhole photos after seeing this.

    but I agree, website is obnoxious.

    I'm curious, but all I'm getting is a message that I'm "trying to install Adobe Flash Player on an unsupported system". Sometimes I get a bit tired of all this flash stuf... Like now.

    Very nice stuff!

    (But I'd rather just click on thumbnails -- I'll be OK as soon as this room stops moving. )

    Great shots, but I have to agree - the delivery system is mind numbing. There's no way I could look at more than a very few photos like that. And it takes away from the product anyway.

    Thanks for al the compliments about the photos and constructive criticisms about the photoshop.com delivery system; I'll post directly to the forum from now on, and maybe even these four photos for anyone else who wants to look.
