    wide-angle on efke positive

    From my new 5x7 pinhole, loaded with Efke positive paper:



    Everything people have said about how touchy this stuff is to work with... is true. A lot of my shots are nearly black+white (no grays), even with pre-flashing. Reciprocity failure is extreme, areas in light shadow on an overcast day could not be coaxed into showing any more detail from a two-hour exposure than a ten-minute exposure (which is to say, none at all visible to the eye, though you can reveal some with delicate scanning or backlighting).

    Yes I found the same with the Ilford pos paper too. I decided to use enlarger paper, much easier to handle

    Thanks. I wanted it to have some of that real "pinhole feel", so I tried to make the pinhole fairly clean and small but didn't strive for minimum thickness of the material. So, the images have some decent detail but still vignette, which was the goal.
