Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2017

May 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday was a special day. Each last Sunday of April marks the worldwide pinhole photography day. I loaded my Zeroimage wooden pinhole camera with a Kentmere 35 mm black and white film and headed out of the door around 10 o'clock. It was cold (41°F) and miserable and completely overcast but it was not going to stop me. I made many stops throughout the day and spent about 6 hours shooting some of my past favorites and a few new locations. I hope to develop the film soon and share some photos with you here. For now, here's a behind the scenes cell phone photo of the pinhole camera taking in the Richardson Olmsted Complex, or Hotel Henry (what a contrast, by the way - the instant gratification of a smart phone camera vs. a film-loaded pinhole camera).

When I started moving back from the northtowns in mid-afternoon, there were some partial breaks in the clouds and temperatures made it to 50s. When I parked in Orchard Park, there were clear skies and 70°F.

The magic of pinhole photography is growing on me strongly and I plan to take it to the next level and make it even more old-fashioned. But more on that another day ...

Enjoy the Beauty that Surrounds You! (#etbtsy)
