Tiny flowers in the April sun – DIY pinhole close up photography
Experimental photography is a bit nerve wracking as it is freeing. After each image was done I got back in the darkroom and safelights, removed the paper & made a note on the back before reloading the tin with fresh, unexposed paper. I didn’t get back to develop the paper until the next evening and the exposures seemed to be just fine through the transition & storage.
The guesswork & suspense of pinhole photography add something a live screen & instant review sorely miss. My method is a slow process to load a frame at a time or develop & test one at a time, but worthwhile in the surprise when the image appears in the developer.
Stretch your creativity a bit & give a new process or technique a try!
Tech details – images made on Arista RC glossy paper, guesstimated exposures around 5 minutes each.
