    WPPD: Slow.

    Having recently dug out my little 6cm x 9cm MDF pinhole camera, I thought I would let it pass some photons. The decision was clinched when I realised that I have no 5x7 or 4x5 holders loaded with...

    Hi Don,

    Yes decreasing the sensitiser concentration will increase the contrast, but it will also mean you need to increase the exposure to get the same base black. The rough guide I use (not...

    Hi Barry,

    I have a camera that uses the little film holders too; mine is 37mm focal length and also has a 0.2mm aperture. I have double-sided film holders, some 6x9 roll film holders and also a...

    Wow, looks really fun!

    I second Earl's suggestions to try something like cyanotype first in the enlarger, and try to get carbon working with negative on film and a UV source first; it took me a...

    Hi Earl,

    Yes for sheet film cameras, having the filter on the inside is not a problem as it is easy to get too; I did have sheet film in mind when I posted as it my main use for filters, but...

    I have a 5" x 4" and a 6cm x 9cm camera which both have old filter rings glued on the inside; I can then screw a coloured filter in behind the pinhole. I shoot mostly paper negatives and so use a...

    Hi Nick,

    The national trust wardens at Lacock are actually very good about photography; as long as you hand-hold the camera and do not use flash. The rules are ok for a DSLR with a fast lens,...

    Hi Jon,

    It is the statue of Leonardo Da-Vinci in Amboise. I could not resist getting close to his toe to see the stereo effect, although as he was in the buff, it took quite some careful...
  9. The last, but the one I had to get no matter what.

    Just a short drive away is a charming house called Lacock Abbey. My kids know it more for some of the Harry Potter movies being filmed in the cloisters under the house, but once a chap by the name...

    Delayed but not forgotten...

    I was looking back through the pictures on my computer and the images 'I took just the other day' were over 18 months ago in some cases; I realised I must make time to post them to the forum.

    The return of the Rhubarb.

    I always know Spring is on its way when the Rhubarb starts to poke through the soil. It is growing nicely now and is a good height for photography.

    Once a Strawberry

    Work and bad weather have taken their toll and our garden is looking rough. The strawberry plants are a mass of dead leaves that are just begging to be tidied away; or photographed :)

    An Afternoon of Hellebores

    It has been far too long since I have allowed photons to pass through a pinhole. The wind was low the other week so I took a chance and dug out my 5x4 folding pinhole camera (still with its pink...

    It has been a while since I made any cameras, but I did recently find the pictures I took of the final piece of equipment in this series; the 5x7. The construction is similar and the bellows are...

    Well Chewed: WPPD

    Hi Tim,

    The exposures are looking very good; well done! I use Ilford VC a lot too; I use a yellow filter, pre-flash, rate at EI 6 and develop to completion. A critical issue I find...

    Earl,

    This is rather super. I too think cyanotype is under exploited. I have a bottle of Mike Ware's formula, but I have yet to have good success as all my papers are heavily buffered. I...

    Hi Tom,

    I agree fully with Tony; pinhole is special in the way both 'time' can be captured and curved film/ ultra wide angle images recorded. You have a really cracking image here.
