We go from 85F to 55F and a cold rain in two days, but I am not complaining. The gardens and lawn were severely damaged and need the long overdue soaking. Need to finish up a few things on the Pop-Up camper this weekend to get ready for the boys, in addition to picking more Wild Thimbleberries for jam (for Xmas presents). Should be a bumper crop to pick now for the next few weeks. I was hoping to take the 4x5 pinhole out this evening for a trial run of four exposures at the big lake. Don't have to worry about protecting an expensive lens or electronics with a pihole camera, as there are none-but the rain in pouring down such that I would be miserable. If you go to Flickr and enter 4x5 pinhole in the search engine and select "search photos" you can get an idea of what the primitive camera obscura is capable of in large format. The Ilford Harman Titan has two tripod mounts and two levels, to allow for shooting vertical or horizontal. A cheap way for someone to get into large format work that has a surreal look like the Holga. Along with the camera comes an exposure conversion wheel which you can use to determine the correct exposure for your choice of film. For example, if my regular gossen scout meter gives me a light reading of f/8 @ 1/60th of a second. The wheel will tell you that at F/250 (the pinhole F Stop), the exposure is actually 15 seconds. But not so fast, you have to consult the chart for reciprocity failure for all exposures longer than one second. As such, the correct exposure would turn out to be 55 seconds. So you remove the lens cap from the pinhole, time 55 seconds with your smartphone or other timer, then put the lens cap back on. Done. If you want to develop in daylight and do not have a darkroom, I suggest using the SP445 film development tank (87 bucks) from Spearman Press, which allows you to develop four sheets of film at once in a compact tank. I used the Canon 5D Mark II to photograph a thimbleberry for the blog last weekend, the first time I have shot digital in a year, since returning to film. I will always keep it as I have a big investment in some very nice L series professional lenses, but I must say my soul was recaptured by returning to analogue photography. For me, there is no comparison or the ability to do so many different things that I can do with film to express myself.
