Today is the day!

Yes. I am embarking on another pinhole adventure!

This time around I loaded up 8 pinhole camera's and I am planning on getting them out tonight. I kept the shapes of the boxes fairly simple this year.

One thing I learned from last year was that long rectangular boxes did not provide the view I was after. So this year I'm keeping it simple. 5 round tin cans and 3 square tea boxes. Also this year I'm making notes on what paper I'm using in what camera's. Last year I was pretty conservative. Choosing between Kodak Ektalure (I'm not sure about this anymore) and Ilfords RC and FB Multigrade papers. This year, I'm going a bit more exotic. I loaded up 2 camera's of each with:

  • Kodak Ektalure
  • Ilford Ilfobrom 3.1K
  • Ilford Ilfobrom 2.1K
  • Ilford Ilfospeed 3.1M

This paper was all so old, that I had a hard time opening the envelopes. The glue was fused to the cardboard. It was THAT old. O and this time around I wore gloves and was very careful with dust and other residues that could leave prints on the paper.

I am already looking forward to the results!!!

Also this year I am planning on using good foregrounds in the photographs and I need to remember to face the cams due south. So I'm bringing my compass tonight as well.

Wish me luck!
