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. Here in the Midwest of America, we’ve just finished an unseasonably late cold snap in April, and I guess the selection says something about my need for warmer weather. Pinhole plays particularly well at…

Martin Martinsson – Movements

I first encountered Martin Martinsson’s work last year when perusing Flickr for pinhole work. It was his Movements 7 image that I found, and it was a perfect example of aesthetic in the everyday. When I dove deeper into his photos, I found a photographer who really understood spacial relationships – he clearly has the…

Studies in Motion – Jean-Christophe Denis

One of my favorite features of the pinhole camera is its blurring of time. In other photographic pursuits it is not unusual to see motion blur used creatively. However in pinhole, it’s nearly a constant aspect of the resulting image, which results in us having to always consider the passage of time as an unspoken…

David Cerbone – Cheat River

I first ran into David Cerbone and his work almost 8 years ago in the forums on f295 at a time when both of us were discovering the softly focused world of pinhole photography. Right from the start, there was a theme to his work. The guy was excellent at shooting these captivating scenes of rivers and gullies.…

Csaba Kovács – Out of the Fog

One of the earliest concepts that many of us photographers learn is the power of lines in a photograph. Most often, this concept is demonstrated with a shot looking straight down some train tracks or maybe rows of crops in a field. It’s a powerful effect, and easily reproducible. Therefore, if a photographer makes converging lines…

Get Inspired – Pinholeshot

Today’s featured pinhole photo paints a scene of mystery with light. Pinholeshot Larissa Honsek used her pinhole camera in conjunction with light painting to create this enigmatic forest scene. We love the way she performed this 3-dimensionally, wrapping the light trails around the tree. You can find more of Larissa’s work on Flickr, Tumblr, Instagram,…

Get Inspired – O

Today we abstract the view for our featured pinhole photo. O Marcus Mailoy made this wonderful abstract photo by using just one of the pinhole apertures in his Lomography Multipinhole Operator. This is a fantastic execution of an abstract photo of an abstract subject. The photo was taken from the inside of the Forum Building…

Get Inspired – Suburb X

Today’s featured pinhole photo takes us to a rougher neighborhood. Suburb X Matko Vucica, based in Zagreb, Croatia, made this transcending photo with his homemade pinhole camera using Fuji Velvia film. He’s made a number of pinhole images on slide film, and the richness of color and smooth tonality work well to bring forth his…
