11/21/2004: "Hug Sculpture"

hugsculpture (46k image)
This is another image made with a camera from the 2004 Pinhole Camera Swap. Peter Roehrig of Germany converted a Bilora Bella 66 to pinhole. It uses 120 film and Peter created a shutter which made it possible to use a cable release for the exposure. Some simple pinhole cameras just have a flap for a shutter but often in bright light it is hard to open and close it quickly enough. This setup avoids that problem. A very cool camera conversion.

beautiful. love the dramatism. i like how the trees in the background act like some sort of sunburst, as if playing like music - a symphony orchestra.

hi taco!
yeah you're right. just thought the shutter was neat. and i can be a little slow sometimes and the sun in my part of California can be awfully bright. but most of my pinhole cameras actually do have flaps.

What is the problem with "flaps" in bright sun? You just have to use a 50 or 100 asa film and have a quick hand, it works perfectly.
