    All is normal.

    Having moved away from single shot cameras for a while to focus on being able to get more shots in one outing (without a changing bag) had the side effects that i also stopped shooting the distorted images that i loved to make with my pinhole cameras. I've been pining to get back to it for a while now tho and finally got around to it. Started a series on abnormal looking images taken in normal (and quite boring) poses. Will probably slowly move to trying to exaggerate the effect more with body positions and the like down the road. But to start with here are the first two in the series.

    Both images are 325, 4x5 on photographic paper.

    I have been thinking that when using a pinhole I should stop trying to imitate a image with a lens, but, should go for something unique to the pinhole. You have certainly done that. Bravo.

    Yeah, this is mainly why i got into pinholeing. And i've been rather bummed that in my quest for getting more shots while on the road i had to step away from it for a while. Really thinking about getting myself a bigger changing bag just so i can do more of them on the move.

    Why not build a film camera? I shoot 4x5 pinhole on film as my most used camera.

    I have a bunch of film cameras right now. My most shot camera is my 26mm 4x5. But as they are built around the dimensions of a film holder they're just not conducive to warpy images like these. To shoot these i used an old box one shot camera of mine. I shot them in 4x5 mostly because that's what i had ready cut. The camera itself can take larger paper.
