I am finally getting some results back from my Pinhole A Day project and thought I’d share here. This is day 23 – a visit to the grocery store a few days before Thanksgiving.
I plan to post most of these photos on my photography blog, so if you are interested in seeing more, follow me over there!

My first roll through my Ondu also featured a couple of selfies! Here they are.

When I got the new Ondu MKII in my hot little hands I loaded it up with Portra 160 and took it to one of my favorite places, a place I’ve pinholed many, many times. Zig Zag Falls.
I enjoyed the experience of using this camera. It’s a joy to work with, so easy to carry around and so easy to use. Here are some more photos from that day.
My next series of photographs will be my first from the Ondu MK2 6×6 format. I received my Kickstarter reward in June and immediately loaded it up with film. Over the course of the next few months I tested it with a number of different rolls.
To kick this off, I will also introduce a truly remarkable photographer. I was introduced to his work in Barcelona’s Fundación MAPFRE. I gave the visit a ridiculously quick mention in this post, which does not come near a fraction of how much this exhibition affected me.
The photographer is Hiroshi Sugimoto. To be honest, there isn’t much to say because word fail me. I found his work simply mind-blowing. You must go visit his website. And if you ever have chance to see his work in person, for the love of god, go see it. The remarkable thing about his work are the prints and you have to experience them in person. A computer screen does not do his work justice.
The photo I am sharing with you today was inspired by his “Theaters” series. The idea was to capture an entire film in one frame of film. You can read more about it on his portfolio here. When I saw this I wanted to try it with a pinhole camera. The opportunity came when my husband and I caught a film at the Edgefield’s Powerstation theater, where you can eat dinner and drink a beer while watching the movie. This allowed me to prop my camera on the little counter in front of me instead of hauling in a tripod.
Camera: Ondu MKII
Film: Fuji Acros 100
Exposure Time: 90 minutes
Stand developed for 1 hour with Adonal.
When we visited Astoria last summer I picked up an Olympus Stylus Zoom 80 for 5 bucks at the best little thrift shop. I decided to shoot my favorite film through it, Tri-x, as my first roll. My usual subject being the small town I live in, with a gust appearance by Mt Hood.
LOVED using this camera. And I am also really loving the results. I am tempted to make this my new compact travel camera.
I brought the camera with me to Spokane when I visited family in August and shot some portraits. I will share them when I get around to scanning them.
