    Today is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. Here are the images I took today that are candidates for submission. Taken with a homemade 135, 24x72mm pano camera. What do you think?

    My shots - a couple on the roll were a bit too dense, but otherwise quite a good hit rate.

    A BBC article on Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day:

    Dang it...had some sun on Sunday so I went on the back deck and took my photo, but I blew it! It was World Wide Pinhole Photography Day, not World Wide Pineapple Photography Day! My bad...

    A light Type 55 print, stepped on accidently...(lens used)

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Yay! I finally got the stuff developed and scanned (I have some doubts if I'll ever print them). I used the Arista.EDU ULTRA 100 (Fomapan?) film and Arista EDU RC Grade #2 paper, pre-flashed. This is the widest angle of view I've ever tried, and that makes life even more complicated exposure-wise due to light fall-off toward the edges. So, here's what I submitted to WPPD (one of the best shots on film):


    And here is one of the better shots on paper:


    The whole day here

    The camera here

    I'm pleased with the camera's performance, but not sure how often I'll torment myself with paper negatives!

    Dave, I like that paper negative shot. I think you should keep tormenting yourself with more paper negative images!

    Thanks Joe!

    Yeah, maybe another iteration one of these days will help. Other than the preliminary testing, most of my pinhole work has been on WPPDs over the years, but I ought to try a little more often.

    The graded paper was the "semi-matte" which was probably a mistake too, shoulda bought glossy. (I think I see some scan artifacts that may be texture related.) Otherwise, I'm thinking this year's may be my best actual pinhole so far, that part was encouraging. Dimple and sand with wet #600 in 1 mil brass, and I now have a lifetime supply of "BlackenIt" from my friendly model RR shop.

    I recently saw some black 1/2 inch foam core, maybe I should go for a foam 8x10 next year ...

    I don't do pinhole photography but the May issue of National Geographic has an article "The Magic of Camera Obscura" that might be of interest to those of you who do. It is about photographer Abelardo Morell.
