An Experiment on Flickr.Nashville, Tenn.
Ammo Can, f300, Impossible Project PX-600 angled at 45 degrees
These were part of a pinhole experiment I tried about a year ago, prepping for my Instant Year project, which is currently on hold, sadly. Both were shot at the same time using a large surplus ammunition can I turned into a pinhole camera. The film planes inside were angled 45 degrees facing inward (hope that makes sense). Results were too unpredictable, and at $6 each attempt, unsustainable (my original intent was to create a camera that shot four images at a time, but…ummm….no). This image mellowed with age and looks much better now. Maybe that has to do with walking away from it for a bit — editorial distance — but really I think it’s because that’s the nature of Impossible Project film…results change over time. It’s one of the reasons why I love the film so much.

 I got to meet Elle Long over the weekend. I’d heard great things about her…professional, patient and easy going. Mainly I watched another photographer shoot with her because I’m still learning…I’ve never really worked with models before. It was a great experience.

While It Rains: John & an English Heritage Umbrella on Flickr.Funny, I can shoot the hell out of an unpredictable pinhole camera but I’m still learning how to shoot a Polaroid SX-70.
We had a lovely Sunday with friends. Most of the day was spent in the pool but there was an afternoon thundery monsoon that lasted a good 45 minutes. We sat around the back porch and waited.
