Inspiration Week of 6/13

Today’s inspiration is in 3 movements: the scenic, the abstract, and the impressionistic. I love all 3 and, when out shooting my own pinhole camera, often get twisted up trying to decide which to do. The following are some fine examples, to help open your eyes for the weekend. Need more? Check out our galleries…

Inspiration Week of 5/16

This week ƒ/D brings some more photos that I’ve been very excited to see. If there’s a common theme to these, I’d say that they’re all moments in transition. Vignettes of a story – a day at the pool; traveling cross country; the vanishing sun at the beach; the setting of another day in the backyard;…

Inspiration Week of 5/2

This week’s set of inspiration bring depth and motion to the forefront. Whereas other photographers are often shying away from motion or seeking to freeze it, the pinhole photographer embraces it.

This week’s set of inspiration photos explore spaces that we get to know well. These photos explore some great opportunities that lie within our daily lives.

Inspiration Week of 4/11

This week’s inspirational photo set takes us from the beautiful sun of the Hawaii sky to the tranquil shore of SW France.

Pinhole plays particularly well at…
