Day 04 of the #ArtAdventCalendar
Today's pinhole offering is from a brief flirt with paper negatives. I should flirt again. I like paper negatives.
Counter productively, the thought only seems to occur in the depth of winter in the northern hemisphere... which is very much not ideal for paper negatives. Maybe I should embrace it anyway 🤔

Day 03 of the #ArtAdventCalendar
One of my favourite thing about pinhole photography is the ability to shove the camera in all sorts of places. In this image, the camera was in the puddle. I would have never considered getting that low with any of my other cameras.
Day 02 of the #ArtAdventCalendar
One of my favourite thing about pinhole photography is how easy it is to make your own camera. It doesn't have to be perfect to work.
This is from a Pentax ME Super sporting a cut up drink can with a tiny kind of round but not really round undefined aperture. It's still one of my favourite pinhole camera.
It's the #ArtAdventCalendar :)
This year I'm going to share a pinhole image everyday. Once upon a time, I was obsessed with pinhole photography. I still am but my self-imposed rule not to use film has impaired my pinhole image making a lot.
Anyway... here's one of my very first pinhole image. As you can see, I got a few things wrong but somehow still fell in love with the process.
New pinhole camera! 😃
"Multi format pinhole camera capable of produce images in 6×6, 6×9 and 6×12 format with very little if no vignetting."

Día de los Muertos is a combination of an Aztec tradition from 3,000 years ago and the Catholic tradition of honoring ancestors and loved ones that have passed away for All Souls Day.
¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

「 I had a US $10 ESP32-Cam board left over from a previous project that I realized would be perfect for this endeavor. The board integrates the popular Wi-Fi–enabled ESP32 microcontroller with a microSD card socket, an indicator LED, and an interface for a number of low-cost image sensors 」
Another oldie but a favourite.
Rainbow Bluebells is a 4x5" #pinhole #trichrome made with a Harman Titan camera and Ilford HP5. The trees shadow has moved during the 3 exposures and the time taken fumbling the filters between and this has induced the rainbow in the bluebells. Another win for "Colour from Movement".
Is that the child of a lumen print + solargraph? I haven't Googled it yet, but that's basically what I tried here. I walked past an empty cereal box in the kitchen and well.... ;)

Cereal box converted to a #pinhole camera + expired Kodak paper + flowers.
The Waiter - an exercise in shooting from the hip while following our waiter to our table on the porch at the Dimmick Inn. Always fun and unpredictable. Processed as a B&W. :)

Homemade pinhole camera that was positioned around the window in the kitchen. I dipped the Kodak paper negative in leftover wine.
OK, so here is my #introduction !
I live in the most isolated capital city in the world, #Perth , and therefore on Whadjuk #noongar boodja. I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of the land, and their Elders - past, present, and emerging.
I am male (he/him), and married to the amazing artist @leece .
For fun, I play #rpg games, and #boardgame . I also swim as a #mermaid (well, mer-dude), and ride a three-wheeled human-powered vehicle called a Me-Mover. I have a Hobie Outback pedal-powered kayak, which takes me back to my past as a Sea Scout on the Swan. I enjoy playing with #lego, #cooking, #preserving, and many, many other things.
I am an amateur #photographer without any particular speciality, but I do particularly like taking shots of #birds (especially #raptors ), and other mer-folk. I also enjoy shooting #pinhole B&W, and play with in-camera #cyanotype (about which I have written extensively on my blog) . To round things out, I take quite a few #solargraph images.
For the past few years, I have been learning Nyoongar (primarily the Marribank Orthography).
I have always loved pinhole photography, although these days I no longer have a darkroom or a pinhole camera. So I get the effect during processing. Back in July, I was people watching at the lake and noticed the young man sitting alone at the water's edge. I saw it as a pinhole in my mind's eye. https://pixels.com/featured/july-two-pinhole-renata-natale.html

Since I'm on a self-portrait kick of late, let's share an older one for day 10 of the #ArtAdventCalendar
I created this one in the midst of constant lockdowns and the realisation I am autistic. It was an incredibly difficult time during which my life crumbled in more ways that one. Still, it was also a hugely empowering time, one that allowed me to understand myself a lot better and ultimately lead to being able to take care of myself in a way that works.
One thing with Mastodon is working out what images you've already shared. I've shown this image before on the bird site but not here (I don't think). Either way it is a re-edit, using Affinity Photo 2 to see if the auto alignment was any better. Difficult image to auto-align as the tide was rising and most things in the scene were moving.

Here are a couple of shots from a trip to Italy taken with the camera included in the third photo.
The #Milan Duomo was quite an experience. I'm so amazed at the work done by earlier generations of artisans.
The Cinque Terre was equally inspiring. This is the village of Manarola, where we spent most of our time.
The prototype for the Pinoramic 120 Series 2 cameras.
Keep forgetting this important step, so it's pinned on my profile page.
