As the sky was cloudy and the light quite muted, this exposure took 20 minutes at F/235 on the Zero Image 6x9 Pinhole. I had plenty of time to hike downstream and scout for other photos, just keeping an eye on the stopwatch on my iPhone. We had a slight drop in temperature, but in the high 60’s is still too warm for this time of the year. Deer hunting is always better during bow season when he have a few of those frosty mornings to get them moving. Shot two rolls in the newly acquired Zero Image 6x9 Pinhole this afternoon-one at 6x6 and the other at 6x9. I am not fond of the film transport system in this wooden medium format camera, as film flatness and tension on the spools could improve. I will figure out some intervention myself and make modifications if necessary (I am thinking of gluing in some foam blocks like the Holga has). Overall, the build, wood, and brass are quite beautiful and the images have that dreamy appearance that pinholers love. I visited Bond Falls, on the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River, as well as Jumbo Falls on the Jumbo River, just a few miles further on M-28. Overall a nice day for a drive. My longest exposure today was twenty minutes and shortest at fifteen seconds. Anything exceeding one second and the water will become creamy and blurred.
