    WPPD 2013 Direct Positives

    Hi folks;

    Just finished scanning and uploading some 4"x5" Harman Direct Positive Prints, exposed in my f/285 plywood pinhole camera yesterday during WPPD 2013, all taken in downtown Albuquerque.

    I had two unexpected outcomes. The first was this image of the New Mexico Bank & Trust building, where I accidentally pressed on the film holder and briefly exposed one edge to direct sunlight. However, I'm still pleased that I was able to get good shadow detail with the highlights.

    "Bank & Trust" (2:24)


    The second mishap was during development when another direct positive print came loose in the Jobo bottle and partially covered this one, causing uneven development.

    I also have a roll of Fuji Acros 100 exposed in my Holga pinhole that I've processed and need to print and/or scan.

    Those are great! I really like 1, 2, 4 and 5. If I had to pick a favorite, it's the "sun cylinder" because of the shadows from the trees and the nice texture of the bricks in and out of the cylinder shadow.

    Really nice, Joe. I was in Albuquerque for the first time last Spring and I recognize some of these places. Reminds me that I need to get back to New Mexico at some point.

    Joe, there's a surreal aspect to these images that I love.

    My favourite of the bunch has to be 'Sun Cylinder'.
