Not sure what happened there, but deleted last one, as seemed the words at least repeated. Tifs won’t post, unfortunately.
We talked about using copper shim yesterday, and I learnt a valuable lesson about reflection from inside the lens cap. So obvious when you think about it.
Those shots are getting to the ‘amazing’ stage. What’s the exposure time like? Perhaps you should start a side line in Pinhole lens manufacturing? ;-)
Ha, I tried to upload the Tiff file, 60MB. It didn't want to...
100 ISO 2 seconds outside
Great stuff you two. My efforts are so bad they are not worth posting. Obviously I am lacking fundamental skills in creating a pinhole... which is ludicrous and frustrating. Have tried thin aluminium, electrical foil and various other things around here, but can't get past the excessive blurriness. Might try to find the copper shim. Would like to create one decent shot, to justify the shiny new hole in the body cap.
All takes me back to my days at ATL browsing through those early photographs.
A beer can seems to work well, with the tip of the pin just poking through. Maybe also look at the width of the hole around the pinhole, as if the light hits any ridges – you probably knew that already.
I still can’t get anything like Jos though on digital.
There’s more on his garden blog.
Swami Neelamber's pinhole pix, with rather more information than the web link provided earlier.
I used the finest needle I could find in my wife's stash and then only just pricked the tiniest end through, then finely sanded off the small bump on the reverse that the needle had made. Making the inside of the copper and the shiny plastic of the body cap matt black helped with light reflection bouncing to and fro the camera's sensor and the body cap. Then I used the clarity slider and some sharpening in Photoshop.
Insect husks, 30 second exposure for this
It almosts looks a sequential time lapse...
but no it is just Mark Seymour territory again:
"Shed your skin and let's get started..."
I always wanted to be able to that,
imagine all these people husks
on city walls and under bridges...
I was just looking at trees in Hagley Park
the other day to see if there were any
current husks about...
turn, turn, turn...
Our Pinhole WOrkshop plans roll on.
Have updated the post with the new venue details. Minnie Street Studio.
Artstation kind of stuffed up their bookings, to put it mildly, but they do try hard, and do other good things, so we'll let them off this time.
Also I'm being interviewed on 95bFM tomorrow morning during breakfast about Capture and the Pinhole Workshop. That should be... terrifying.

Famous!! Good luck. :-)
And here’s the link to the bcast. Where you may hear the lovely Jackson’s mellifluous tones. IRL.
This is definitely the first time I've ever been referred to in this way. What does it mean again?
Just kidding. Thanks Jackie.

Yay Jackson! And looking very fine, too :-P
Here's a little bit of photographic fooling around on an aeroplane.
Thanks Jackie, I was travelling when this was happening so I didn't get to hear it.
Nice Jack! ;)
Cheers everyone. Was a funny thing, and a real nostalgia moment being back in the B Studio after 20 mumble years.
It worked though. As a result of the show the workshop is now pretty much full, with only a couple of places left.
WOW! Now there's a pinhole camera and a half.

Amazing! We better get some bigger paper though. And a bigger developing tank. Actually bigger everything.
Second thoughts, might stick to the mini-pinhole variety.
And a bigger developing tank.
Yes, I was musing on that too. Quite a large tank!
But maybe we can do that at next year's workshop? ;-)
They somehow are making use of window-box planters lined with a plastic sheet. They must roll up the paper into the bath??
Well i’ll be dipton…
They must roll up the paper into the bath??
remember pre-pasted wallpaper, same system probably….
- but light tight or in a darkroom – maybe a pull-through-two-trough
system so you can get even development immersion at all points …
