I miss Bozeman. I spent most of the '70's there, graduating in '79. Tough to make a living though.
Thanks for the feedback everyone. I did use some Ilford positive paper when I first got my pinhole but had some difficult time with the learning curve and the sensitivity of the paper. I have found actual negative film to be a little easier to control with some pleasing results.
Here are two of my negs from that weekend of backpacking. I have a few more sheets to process but wanted to share these as they came out a little better then I expected. These are scans that have been processed a bit in LightRoom to get close to what I would like them to look like when I get a chance to print them.
Both are excellent!
Alex, they both came out well. They look great. Did you do filtering, and if so, what was it?
Those two images are ust as I would expect from a Zero Image pinhole camera — primal beauty with a nod to the photographer's perceptual and visual arrangement. Neato! :)
Thank you all for the kind words! :)
Aleks, I've just tried the very same thing., filters with pinhole. I used a deep red filter behind the pinhole to enhance the seperation of sky and clouds. It also had the added benefit of cutting through the industrial haze we sometimes get in the Northeast. But a word of warning, make sure the filter is absolutely perfectly clean and blemish free. The slightest mark will show up on the negative. I'll post the scans of my latest effort so you can see what I mean.
