Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2013

Last Sunday the 28th of April we celebrated the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day.

It was very very fun!

I had three cameras with me, my Zero 2000, Holga 120WPC and my newest love, the Harman Titan 4×5, which I just LOVE!! It has all I’ve dreamed of with pinhole photography.

Here is my favourites from the day, one from each camera, but on the Pinhole Day site one can only upload one single image, so after having checked out the competition”, I chose the one from my Holga.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    • Hehe, thanks a lot Jesus. Yes, I love the 4×5 too, I think it is my favourite, it is the one I would choose to hang on the wall, but for the pinhole day site I needed something that stood out from the masses, then the holga image was outstanding.
      The Harman Titan is a gorgeous camera, it gives me the “soft sharpness” I have looked for.

  1. The redscale image is absolutely terrific Marie it has a really strong presence with its exaggerated perspective as you look up at the tree from those tentacle like roots. Have a great weekend…….and more lomograhy redscale I just love it!

  2. Wonderful variety of subjects, moods and of course pinhole cameras. I think its so funny how pinhole photographers collect pinhole cameras. Theyre each such unique characters. I agree with Simon that my favorite is the redscale tree. I enjoy the lines, the distortions and the incredible sense of height. Cheers to a very successful pinhole day Marie!

  3. Well done red scale tree is my fab too. I went out on pinhole day too, trying to decide which one to put in is hard., will post them up like you have done! Have to ask you this – why are your results on all three cameras so sharp, most pinhole images are quite soft . Am I missing something? Please let me know more? Thanks

    • Thanks Lesley! πŸ™‚
      The “sharpness” comes from two things.
      1 I like the soft sharpness from these cameras, the very unsharp ones doesn’t thrill me.
      2 I scan my negs as .tif files and then they are as soft as you say, but to put them online, I have to convert them to .jpeg, and that is a kind of post editing, including some sharpening I didn’t ask for, but they maybe look a bit more sharp than they really are.

Please, share your thoughts
