Roll 44 – The pumpkin patch

Photography

Here is my latest on 52 rolls. Enjoy!

52 rolls

For roll 44 I visited a pumpkin patch in Sauvie Island with my pinhole friends Gretchen and Donna. We had a great day playing pinhole in the corn maze. At one point we found ourselves surrounded by kids and I scared them with a zombie horse mask. I may have gotten punched in the face by one of them…

These were made with my Zero 45 and  Ektar film. Check out Gretchen’s photos of the day here!

Roll 42: A sheet a day

Photography

Another post up at 52 rolls. Happy Saturday!

52 rolls

In August I began a project in which I shot one sheet of 4×5 in my Zero image camera everyday. I am a big believer in daily practice as a way to learn something which was exactly my goal – to really learn how to use this camera. The 25mm ultra wide angle on this thing was confounding me so I was hoping that familiarity would make me feel less intimidated. I shot these with Arista 100 because it’s cheap and you can buy it in packs of 50. I would shoot six days and then develop it with my Mod54 (it holds six sheets of film). Then I would scan them by taking a photo of the negatives on a lightbox with my iPhone and then inverting the negative in the Photoshop iPhone app. It became a nice routine that I really looked forward to. I uploaded these shots to…

Roll 41- a hike to a waterfall

Photography

I meant to post something more substantial today but instead I have this: reblog of my post on 52 rolls. Enjoy!

52 rolls

For roll 41 I took my Zero 4×5 out hiking to Tamanawas Falls (say that fast three times) on Mt. Hood. It’s a gorgeous hike and if you are ever in the area I highly recommend it. It’s a short hike, probably a mile or so to the Falls. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit this place. I don’t know if there is much more to say about that. Except that I used Ektar.

Roll 27 – Olympus XA and Cinestill

Photography

My latest on 52 rolls! Raf and I spent the weekend at the beach a couple of weeks ago and I took a lot of photos. There are tons more to share in future posts.

52 rolls

After seeing the wonderful results on 52 rolls, I wanted to try my hand at Cinestill too. I loaded it up in my new favorite camera: the Olympus XA, and headed to the beach for the weekend. Unfortunately, I am not immediately in love with the results I got with this film. There are a few that I liked (shown below), but generally I am feeling kind of “meh.” My negatives were quite scratched. And there was a bit too much grain for my liking.

The problem, I realized, is that I didn’t shoot this roll under the right lighting conditions. For my next roll I will follow the instructions and shoot using the correct lighting.

Roll 26 – A 3d Printed Pinhole camera

Photography

I have lost the whole concept of time regarding this project, but here is my 26th roll.

52 rolls

A few days before I left for Amsterdam I ordered a Schlem P6*6 3D printed pinhole camera from Todd Schlemmer. Todd lives in Seattle, a mere hop, skip, and Jump away from where I live near Portland. So I fully expected to receive the camera via mail after our trip. However, Todd was planning on going to Amsterdam as well so he offered to deliver the camera on WPPD in AMS! It was very exiting to receive it on this most special day. My husband used the camera that day and enjoyed it very much. You can see my husband’s WPPD submission with this camera here in the WPPD gallery.

When we got back from our trip I ran some color film through it. I really loved using it! I love that it has a lens cap, it makes exposures less shaky (see this post about that trick
