Get Inspired – Chûn Quoit

It is fitting that these prehistoric ruins be photographed with the oldest of techniques. Chûn Quoit Paul Hetherington made this wonderful capture in Cornwall with his Zero Image 4×5. This is the only quoit in the area to keep it’s capstone in situ, and as such is quite the iconic burial structure. More of Paul’s…

Get Inspired – Collin Street Bakery

Today we take in the energy around us. Collin Street Bakery Mike Rosebery captured this scene from a bakery in Tyler, Texas. He deftly used his Zero Image pinhole camera to take in an extended scene at this bakery. While the long exposure left out all the people (an effect we’ve highlighted before), you can…

Paul Barden: Rural Pinholes

Note: all images in this article are ©Paul Barden I first came across Paul’s images while perusing the Flickr Pinhole Photography Group pool. As I scrolled through the page I came across this arresting self portrait, “Walking the Dead”, (right) of a bearded man that had this quality to it that just stopped me in my…

Get Inspired – Whitby Abbey

Today’s featured pinhole photo is rather awe inspiring. Whitby Abbey Alastair Ross produced this wonderful image using his Zero Image 2000 loaded with Infrared (IR) film. IR pinhole is a very powerful combination, especially for subject matter such as this. The feelings of movement, and a broody darkened sky, bring about a sense of foreboding…

Old Tree No. 4 (In the fog) Daniel Guy captured this wonderful image with his Zero Image 6×7, showing a tree that has been the subject of his pinhole photos a couple other times as well (here, here, and…

Get Inspired – Pinhole Egg

Today’s featured pinhole photo is a masterwork of simplicity. Pinhole Egg John Healey provided an excellent description of his creative process: I usually use my pinholes for landscapes and outdoor shoots but this pinhole picture was developed for one of Zack Aries’s Dedpxl assignments call The Egg. I had shot many photos of eggs using…

Get Inspired – 30 Minutes

In today’s featured photo, Atttila Hupjan shows us what happens when you just leave that shutter open! 30 Minutes Attila made this photo by mounting his Zero Image 612B on the back of the boat and leaving the shutter open for 30 minutes. The white squiggle in the sky is the moon as it bounced…

Scott Speck: the ƒ/D Interview

While I’ve been photographing for over 20 years now, I’ve only been using pinhole cameras for the last 7 or 8 years. I still remember the images that inspired me to pick up the pinhole camera and give it a try – many of those images were produced by Scott Speck. Naturally, when I started…

Get Inspired – West Side Market

Today’s photo deceives with an apparently empty market. West Side Market I made this 6 minute exposure in a very very crowded West Side Market in Cleveland on a Saturday afternoon. The crowd was so thick you could barely move, but because of the long exposure, the place looks empty! This photo was chosen because…
