07/02/2004: "Cache Creek Bridge"
I am trying my hand at "handholding" rather than using a tripod. I like the "glow" effect on this one. This was shot with a different camera than my usual 6x9 professional pinhole camera. It is a "PinSpartus." I converted a 1950's snapshot camera to pinhole specifically for handheld shots which would constitute a "pinhole visual diary."
Lugging a tripod around limits the subject matter quite a bit, although I do enjoy the relative sharpness one gets with a tripod, I also like these blurry shots from the PinSpartus. There are a lot of surprises in pinholing, which is part of the attraction. Sometimes it's like Christmas, other times it's like a plate of brocolli if that is your most unfavorite vegetable.
