Get Inspired – Old Tree No. 4 (In the fog)

If you’ve spent much time in the country, you can identify with today’s featured pinhole photo.

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 here). Often it’s wonderful to capture the same subject multiple times from different angles and under different lighting or weather conditions.

As Daniel explained to me, he shoots for narrative rather than for the spectacular. Shooting the same subject over days or months is a great way to tell a narrative about that subject, and perhaps about the viewer. He is surprised to find that this is often the favorite view of the tree, when his favorite view is often #1 – a preference and perspective that says as much about us individually as it does about the subject.

Get Inspired – Forgotten Outpost

Today’s featured pinhole photo was taken by John Nelson.

John made this wonderful photo in Two Guns, Arizona, along Route 66. The scene can be found in the famous “Diablo Canyon” area.

We chose this image for it’s striking tonal range and unique perspective. It’s a wonderful subject for the pinhole technique!
