Daily Pinhole Project – Film No.6

by Helen Hooker March. 01, 2021 618 views

Somehow I forgot to share the photos from the 6th roll of film in my Daily Pinhole Project. This time I chose Portra 400 as I knew I wanted to take some photos indoors. I love using slow film for pinhole photography but I some of the exposures would have taken an hour or more if I’d used ISO 100 film!

I started off in St Mary’s Church in Henham, where my photos each took about ten minutes to expose, during which time I pottered around taking some digital pics too. The following day I took my camera to work where I focused on some of the ancient trees around Hatfield Forest.

My final images for this roll were taken at home. I shot what I hoped would be two different shots of Kevin making a model of an Airspeed Oxford aircraft. Stupidly I forgot to wind the film on between frames, so instead I got a rather messy double exposure!

Knowing I’d made a hash of the model shots I then grabbed my guitar from under the spare bed and made a still life with it. Naturally, I tuned it before opening the shutter, although I doubt that fact will show in the finished image!

What happened to the tree in #5?

Ah, that's one of our ancient hornbeams which has rotted in the middle with age. It's still alive but the trunk is now in two parts!

I love the shots in the church, but #7 really stands out.

Still got that guitar!!! It must be at least 40 years old, but still looks in good condition.  How often do you play it?
