Green LakeLensless 4x5 Pinhole Camera, Ilford Paper Let's continue this black and white Thursday theme for another week while staying in Orchard Park and not far from the scene of the previous Train Depot photo.
If you are interested in learning more about the behind the scenes of shooting straight on an old fashioned photo paper, feel free to hop back to my previous post (Orchard Park Train Depot).
The one thing I am still getting used to is the lack of a viewfinder. I can either guess where the front of the camera is pointed and how wide of a view the camera will capture, or try to approximate things with my regular camera and then replace it in the tripod with the large format pinhole. Unfortunately, I do not have a lens wide enough for this exercise as the Lensless Pinhole I selected is 50 mm. 50 mm on a 4x5" format is equivalent to 15 mm on a 35 mm (full frame) format.
Of course, I can also do some math and create a viewfinder but I am on the fence with that idea as it would take some of the crudeness out of the experience. Maybe I will just rely on practice and learn what fits in and what does not.
Enjoy the Beauty that Surrounds You! (#etbtsy)
