Nils Karlson – Earth Stands Still

Friends – I feel I’ve let you down. You see, I’ve known for a few weeks now that Nils Karlson’s book, “Earth Stands Still”, would be coming via crowdfunding. I’ve known this whole time that it was going to be a triumph of pinhole minimalism. But due to some travel and a mixup, I’m getting this…

Inspiration Week of 9/5

This week brings a few new pieces to help get your creativity going. Fall is almost here, and this is the time of year that I personally feel the most charged to get out and shoot new work. Seasonality not withstanding, if you are needing a little direction in your creative pursuit, check out the…

Inspiration Week of 7/18

Usually I start these weekly inspiration posts with some entertaining banter about the photos, but this week I have something more urgent. ƒ/D exists for two main reasons: to promote the art of pinhole photography and to promote those artists who – regardless of reputation or education – work with pinhole. However, because of my persistent…

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 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…

Get Inspired – Week of June 22

Get Inspired – Oostende, Belgium

Rudi Vandeputte brings us this slice of pinhole dreaminess. Oostende, Belgium Rudi likes to work with his Olympus Pen camera, set up with a Wanderlust pinhole cap and a Gorillapod – an enviably mobile configuration for sure! We chose to share Rudi’s pinhole photo because of how well the format fits this subject. The natural…
