I'll have a go , if I can persuade my memory to work...
Hmm, I wonder if I have an appropriate film? If so, I might get the FrankenLeicaHole out.
I'm thinking about trying some of this:
Either directly as a paper negative or perhaps contact printing a pinhole negative.
Ooooh, good call, I have a pack of that I was given as a Christmas present and have never got round to using!
Originally bought to try lumen prints, so I'll probably do a bit of that as well.
Funnily enough, I had my first bash at that yesterday...
I know a lot of people say use HP5 or similar, but on a sunny day that can need a fast [well, fastish] shutter. My best efforts have been with Fomapan 100 or FP4.
Have a look at the Ilford site for a useful exposure calculator: https://www.ilfordphoto.com/faqs/starting-pinhole-photography-faqs/.
It's a .pdf file buried in there near the bottom.
Film only or can digital be used? I have butchered a spare body cap for my IR D70
Digital more than welcome.
Just checking up on the Sunography paper, seems it needs hours and hours to get an image in a pinhole. Back to square one for tomorrow, may have to stick with digital as I don't have the setup for developing regular paper negs right now.
I've been having a play with the body cap and different hole sizes, trying to get one small enough using just the very tip of a needle is a bit trickier than I thought it was going to be. I am however getting images
Sod it, I'll use Nik pinhole filters.
Can't find my 'decent' card-with-pinhole mount cover but I've got one which is good enough to get some snaps tomorrow.
Steve - how dark does it need to be when you take your cyano paper out of the packet? Wondering because iot's stuningly bright here today, so ideal for it.
Not sure I'll get time for any proper pinholeography....
Er, dunno. My lumen was on ancient photo paper.
I think dimmish but not dark for cyanotype.
Overcast here, but still no rain - the soil is parched.
We shall see, then! I have just come home from the allotment to discover that the attic hatch has fallen in... so that needs to be fixed first! Luckily SWMBO wasn't on the lav at the time, or she'd have had it scared out of her.
I hope you haven't got a Miss Marple living nearby.
Oh arse, everyone else has decided they are having a whole-family Zoom this afternoon!
Didn't get anything close to a keeper but will pop up a few crappy ones later. Also managed to completely misplace the Sunography paper since yesterday, which is annoying as I finally found the sheet of glass to use for contact printing negatives on it.
Round and round the garden...
All were underexposed, despite using a meter and allowing for reciprocity failure, and brought up with curves.
