365 Project We Hardly Knew Ye

The 365 project is hard!  Miss taking a picture on one day and that's that.  Plus doing it exclusively on film is weird ... especially using multiple cameras because you have to write down what you did so you remember the dates when you finally get to the end of the film roll and develop the negatives and then if you develop a roll that you took after the roll that's still in the other camera you can't post the pictures yet until you develop the negatives in the first camera and then it's easier to just blow it off and have a delicious, delicious craft beer and then it's the next day and you discover you forgot to take pictures the previous day and like I said before - that's that.  Oh well, at least I managed for 6 days ... and that's almost a week which is something, right?  Right?

Sigh ...

Anyway, my new plan is to try and take pictures at least once a day unless I don't and then the plan is to try and take pictures the next day unless I don't and so on until I do and if I like them then post them on this blog.  For me that's way more realistic  plus it automatically allows for delicious, delicious craft beer and a whole lot less stress.

The other news (aside from the 365 project failure) is I bought a pinhole camera from Zero Image in Hong Kong.  Here's a link to the camera on their website in case you're interested.

Turns out that pinhole photography is a LOT of fun.  The best part is that you never, ever know what you're gonna get until you develop it and scan it and play around with it in Photoshop.  Here's the best image from my first roll (Pickford Park in Toledo, Ohio taken on 01/11/17 (according to my journal) just before sunset.

So ... there will be more pinhole pictures for sure and some of them will eventually be on actual color film so you'll get to see what Toledo, Ohio looks like through a 0.25mm pinhole.  Now that's pretty cool, right?  Right?

I love this! How exciting about your pinhole camera! Don't be discouraged I'm looking forward to your future posts, even if they aren't daily. I am a homeschooling mother of a very busy and energetic 3 year old so time just blows us by. I'm using the 365 project to showcase my best work and then if I manage to take photos on a particular day and actually get some edited in the same day I might post one. BUT I'm definitely not going to hold my breath on that... I don't see it happening. Anyway, I am loving your composition in photographing the ordinary everyday parts of life and your surroundings and have always adored film. Keep it up! Like I said, I'm looking forward to your future posts!!! =)
