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 8/22

This week for our inspirational post we’re happy to bring you something on the more experimental side. Playing with these techniques will usually give mediocre results at first, but with a bit of effort, the work will pay off. Once learned, I’d love to see how you apply these techniques to your own creative vision. Don’t…

Antonis Kioupliotis – No Lens Athens

If I’ve seen one picture of Athens, I’ve seen a thousand. Moreover, paintings, statues, and studies in art history. They just pile up.

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…

Howard Moiser – Relative Movement

Pinhole isn’t the only form of photography I practice, but it’s one of my favorite forms because of the unique creative challenges that it presents. Other forms of photography will give you controls that allow you to slow down the shutter speed and/or extend the depth of field towards infinity if you so choose. But…
