Finally some nice pre-rain cloud cover when I finished with dinner and dashed to the mouth of the Montreal River at Lake Superior with the new 4x5 pinhole to test things out. One of the first things I noted to myself was that while it was sprinkling, I had no lens to worry about-just a 0.35mm hole that makes for a F/206 aperature. This double exposure was about one minute for each exposure. For anyone familiar with Superior Falls and the mouth of the Montreal, this shot is surreal as the falls appear North in the negative, when in real life, they are south of the big lake. The serendipity of this type of work. Kind of a big old Holga on steroids without a lens. Nice not to worry about F stops, shutter speeds, etc-just how long the exposure will be which is a two step process. Take a meter reading and then transfer it for any F Stop on the ilford exposure dial that comes with the camera. Then take that exposure and look on another chart for the true exposure figuring in reciprocity failure for exposures longer than one second. Fun stuff if you are so inclined or curious.
