    World Pinhole Day - 26 April 2009

    It is fast approaching. What are you plans? I intend to take one of my 35mm matchboxes to the beach and then come home, process it and try a print.
    Thank you.

    I'm thinking of going back to the pinhole lensboard for my 4x5 and using up a few sheets of 4x5 film left around here from 2005. I don't have an operational enlarger for stuff that big, so it'll be contact prints (or hybrid -- "gasp!")

    My newer option is the Bronica SQ-Hole I've used the last two years.

    I have a long list of subject candidates out and about in eastern PA, but given it has been raining or threatening three of the last four WPPDs, I may end up sticking close to home, as I did last year. I'll definitely go out and do something.

    Yeah, that affair was disappointing. I still have one of this:



    Image approximately 7.2 x 9.5 mounted for 11 x 14; PM me your snail mail address if you want it (I don't need two on hand).

    I plan on getting some friends together and doing some pinhole portraits that day. I'll entice them all to my place with beer and make them sit in front of the camera before (and maybe after) they open up a bottle.

    :-)

    Man, why isn't pinhole day on March 17, huh? Or May 5th.
    Thank you.

    I'm hoping to have my 11x14 pinhole camera finished for it.

    Well, I will go out with my 8x10 box that day and take some photographs. Too bad that some of you made so bad experiences with a pinhole exchange. I would like to share some photographs. So if someone is interested ... send a PM.

    Cheers

    I also had disappointing experiences when I took part in the exchange a couple of years ago, although one person did send a beautiful pl/pt print.

    Maybe I will try again with my 5x4 bug-eye, if I can get it working better. At the moment, one of the pinholes is bigger than the others so the images are not all exposed the same.
