Wk 13 (2017): Worldwide Pinhole Day @ Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park

On April 30 we headed out to find something to shoot for Worldwide Pinhole Day.
Again I brought my Wanderlust Travelwide 4×5 with a pinhole lens. (See the NCAR Mesa Lab post for camera specs).

The first shot was made out in the parking lot. It was an extremely bright day with the glare from the recent snow and a mostly clear sky. The pinhole also has a much wider angle of view than I counted on. As a result  this image caught the edge of the sun resulting in an interesting halo around the rock formation.

Moving into the amphitheater, I made a number of shots. The one below is my favorite. The camera was directly on the bench.

This time I switched to Fuji Acros Neopan film for the shots. Developed in Clayton F76+ and scanned using an Epson V700 flatbed scanner.

  1. Good pics. Never have been successful in making a pinhole camera. Last time we were at Red Rocks I used my Koni Omega Rapid M and got some good shots. Time for more experimenting.


    • I spent a few weeks calibrating the exposure. So I can pretty much take the light meter reading and calculate a decent exposure for this pinhole.
