  • Sophie G,

    Cool! What a great day, what a great group, what a great selection of pictures. And yes, they did work really hard to achieve these. The changing light made our guesstimates less than helpful, but this resourceful bunch kept going in spite of the difficulties. Well done crew!

    I did manage to get out of the darkroom at the end of the day and fire off two pringles cans. This was the 'better' shot of the two... murky, blown away in the highlights, covered in bits of grit by the look of it. My eyes saw the flyover as the main part of the picture - over there between the two buildings. The pringles can saw things rather differently...

    I loved doing this workshop. It really challenged my desire to control exactly what I was capturing with my camera.

    Thank you all for your efforts in putting this together & guiding me through it on the day.

    Testing … “yeah, just give it about fifteen seconds in bright sunshine. No, try ten seconds … ”
    Minnie St is now the most pinhole photographed street in the world.
    Absolut Pinhole.

    Looks like a lot of fun and I love the quirky weirdness of the pictures.

    Unable to attend pinhole workshop, I've followed up on Ian’s comment:

    “is there a direct to CCD array version?
    y’know, sorta pin cushy…
    or direct to card punch
    for the Steam Pinhole aficionados”

    I’ve tried out the pin-cushy and the card punch direct to CCD all in one!
    Actually I was surprised it produced anything at all……

    This is the Pin Cushy Cat

    An example of the rapidly-changing light. The same subject, first in bright sunlight, then, seconds later, under cloud.

    Our Pringle-tin cameras had a very wide angle of view, with the paper negative wrapped around the curve of the tin.

    You can see the difference here. It’s the same tree. :-)

    And then, cropped, so you can identify it more easily.

    It was a magical day. Big thanks to Johnathan, Sophie, Petra and Jackson for making it so special, and to Jocelyn for the use of her fine studio. And to all the other participants, who were heaps of fun to work with.

    Rebecca, I hope we might see you posting here again! :-)

    Just for fun, here is a convex mirror I found in my travels on Eden Terrace. And a distorted self-portrait. :-)

    Great captures people, it's wonderfully random!

    That's the see-through Moreton Bay fig in Albert Park, Auckland? A student haunt - I remember it well as was, then it being felled ~40 years ago leaving a vast hollow shell of a stump only say 10 cm thick, apparently dead. But numerous shoots sprouted forth around the perimeter, looking most ugly, disproportionate for years. But now they've all grown large themselves, filled in the space and merged together, you'd hardly know if you didn't know :-)

    There are a number of fig trees in Albert Park, but that one was the most characterful!! Fascinating to know its history, thank you. :-)

    wow.
    the capture team should be on the lookout for semi-spherical photo paper for next years pinhole workshop!
