Hope everyone had a great weekend! I want to start this Monday off with three very nice shots from Steve Gosling. These were shot on film in a very unique way. Read on to find out how. Be sure to visit Steve’s website HERE for more!
I hope that you are well and thanks for an interesting site – I visit every day.
Please find attached 3 photos taken on film (Ilford’s Pan F) on a Zero Image pinhole camera taken as part of my ongoing ‘Lensless Landscapes’ project. I’ve been working with pinhole cameras for a number of years and love the ethereal results possible due to unlimited depth of field, wide angle of view and very long exposures (from several seconds to many minutes e.g. the attached ‘Into the Light’ is a 40 minute exposure).
More recently I’ve been experimenting with pinhole adaptors on my Leica M6TTL and can’t wait to try them out on my recently acquired M9 (my dealer thinks I’m mad to spend £5k on an M9 and then use it as a pinhole camera! He’s right of course but then I will be using it to take ‘normal’ photos as well). One of the advantages of using a rangefinder camera for pinhole photography is that you can retain a reasonably wide angle of view (around 25mm with a full frame Leica compared to around 38mm with a DLSR). I’ll let you see some results from the M9 when I’ve had chance to test it out.
Many thanks and keep up the good work!
