Thread: Trees through a pinhole camera

    Trees through a pinhole camera

    I'm a bit of sucker when it comes to photographing trees. With their different shapes, colours, textures and sizes I never get tired of looking at them. Truly one of nature's coolest features.

    These were all shot within the last 5-6 months but I'm only now getting around to posting them up.

    DIY 5x4 pinhole camera
    f150 and focal length 45mm
    0.3mm pinhole diameter
    Fomapan 100 rated at 50iso in Rodinal 1:100 for 30 minutes semi stand
    Berlebach 3032 Report tripod

    George:

    I think that 4. Birch Trees 2, Co Clare is a wonderful photo.

    The focus on number 4 really pulls the eye towards the center of the picture down between the row of trees.

    I love the first one, with the track stand in the distance. Perfect composition.

    It's funny, Earl. I wasn't going to post it because I didn't think it would be anything that people would appreciate given the trees moved so much during exposure. But on flickr too people seem to like it as an image. Just shows that one never can tell what people are going to like?

    Completely unintentional...or at least it was not conscious on my behalf. But maybe that's when we photograph best? When it it is our subconscious that's in control? Thanks for your comment, Simon !

    I like that one too, Jimmy.
    Bellewestown is a funny little place. They really love their horse racing heritage there.
