    Willow Creek

    A couple more instant pinhole from yesterday.

    I enjoy using instant film for pinhole, but it's not as "instant gratification" as you might think... I always wait until I get home to peel them, so that I can hang them to dry in a closet where there is no dust. I need to make a drying box.

    I didn't time these exposures, but around 20 or 25 minutes each.

    I'm a sucker for the textures leaves make against the sky... always looking and making photos. I get the feeling that others sometimes find them sort of boring, but I'm endlessly fascinated... when I walk through the woods I'm always looking up. And I'll never forget the first time I drove through the back road in Jedediah Smith Redwoods in a car with a sun roof!

    What camera are you using? My only 4x5 pinhole can't take the 405 holder.

    Hi Elizabeth, it's a polaroid colorpack from the goodwill auction site for $5 or $6. I cut the front off with a hacksaw or dremel tool and replaced it with a piece of black matboard with a pinhole and simple sliding shutter. It's fun! I'll try to remember to post a picture of the camera here later this week. I also snapped off the "viewfinder" and epoxied a tripod socket where it used to be.

    On the colorpack cameras, you can remove the front of the camera with the lens assembly just by removing some screws. Originally I did that to make a "normal view" pinhole camera, but I like pinhole photos to be wider, so eventually I sawed off the front of the camera to make the pinhole closer to the film.... I might find time tomorrow to take a photo of the camera. Not much to it really!

    The pics are lovely, Ned. I especially like the second one. Must have been quite still, as there's not much movement.
