Pinhole Photographs

 

 I am playing around with pinhole photography. I am using these two large format cameras with black and white film.

 

The green 'Alligator' takes 5x7 inch film and has a long focal length. The simple brown wooden box camera takes 4x5 inch film dark slides and has a wide focal length.

I am looking for the idiosyncratic features of the pinhole medium, such as the long depth of field, softened focus and the radical shifts in perspective, to bring something new to my images. Millimetres count when you are taking close ups and with no viewfinder, it's taking a lot of tests and failures.
