pinhole camera

Post by mark dyson »

I have just ordered a 6x6 pinhole camera from silverprint, like the one used by Paul Gallagher. It uses 120 film and produces 6x6 negs and It has a f-stop of 128. see www.silverprint.co.uk.

Wow, good luck, hope you get something to cherish. I remember Paul at the club, his photos were stunning. Pity his family having to stand in a field with him for two hours while he calculated exposure times. Just like yours will!

It won't be Mark's family getting cold feet - more likely to be me. Long exposures? - not something our friend Tom Gerrard would enjoy - eh Tom? Looking forward to playing with it Mark - oops, nothing to play with!
