With lots of bad weather confining me to the house, the photos from the third film of my daily pinhole project have been more still life based, although I did manage a few frames outdoors.
My indoor adventures included a kitchen scene, where I repeatedly boiled the kettle in the hope of some steam appearing in my photo. Sadly this didn’t work – it would seem I need constantly billowing clouds of it for the steam to appear on the negative! The three still life set ups I shared behind the scenes shots of a few days ago worked better, although my pepper has none of the detail of Edward Weston’s one.
Outdoors, I found a tree on one of our walks, using the hedge to lead the viewer in. My favourite though is the vertiginous view from the top of the bridge at our village railway station. With my camera set as high as it would go on the tripod I waited for a train to come into the station (you can see its blur coming towards the camera on the right hand track) and opened the shutter.
