Pinhole Photographs

 

Starting on a new body of work, I have chosen to play around with pinhole photography. I am using these two large format cameras with black and white film.

 

The green 'Alligator' takes 5x7 inch film dark slides 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.

 

I'm in the testing phase.
