Pinhole photography on a grand scale

by Helen Hooker May. 28, 2020 345 views

It’s been a few weeks since I received my 6x9 pinhole camera from the lovely people at Ondu and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day, when I haven’t been out with my camera, to get round to sharing the pictures from it. Today that finally happened (although it wasn’t rainy!) so I thought I’d publish some pictures from the first roll I shot.

I’m pleased with the results, although initially I couldn’t figure out why some of the pictures are a little softer than I’d hoped. Of course, shooting long exposures in woodland I should have expected that as the branches and leaves move in the wind!

The most amazing thing about photographing in 6x9 format is the sheer size of the negatives. They are simply enormous compared to 35mm film negatives and capture so much detail. I can’t wait to get out and shoot some architecture with this camera very soon!

#1 in particular has a dreamy surreal quality to it and others to some extent.  Very effective.
