Pinhole Day April 2006

World Pinhole Day.
I stayed home and ran a roll of store-branded generic asa 800 print film through a pinhole camera that I built from the shell of an Argus Model 21 Markfinder, with grafted-on Alphax shutter.
Camera itself can be seen in one of my earlier galleries.
Aperture value calculated @ f:175, focal length measured @ 37mm.
The cheap fast flm made for some interesting results. Reciprocity failure was a little more than anticipated, making for some unusual effects in shadow areas. And the extreme grainiess of the film emulsion contributed to "a look" in some of the frames.
From the negative slides, I prepared an even dozen images to show here.
All images are 2006 E.J.Kowalski.
