[raulpc] week 38 – 3:1 panoramic

Back on the tracks, with Delta100 getting old inside my diy6x17, so it was to go where everybody goes in Lisbon to see the river, the bridge, and feel the best in the city. Not the best framing in the end, its hard to get the perfect composition without a ground glass, still I liked…

[raulpc] week 37 – more pinhole 6×17

Another experiment with light and mood, trying to figure out exposure for an inside picture, with the me as a ghost showing up as intended but not quiet as I wanted. The only one with something to see on this roll. With and old TriX developed in PMK.    

[raulpc] week 29 – more 6×17

This time again with my DIY 6×17, just for the fun of it, again some old expired Ektachrome… more fascination in chrome… and look at these positives in hand with endless fascination! I know digital folks can crop whatever they want this format, but is it the same?

[raulpc] week 28 – 6×17

I have a fascination for this 6×17 format, specialy chrome mode, just looking at this colorfull large wide image, and it comes from a long ago, when in early seventies past century my father introduced home 35mm slides… those evening dark projections of them against the white wall… magical! This week in pinhole, with RsSubtle…

[raulpc] week 24 – thin TMax 400

Again on the side of 6×17, here with my DIY camera, on a garden around here at Lisbon, looking wide on a subject just for the fun of it. Development in Tanol, and upon first wet look, a thin negative like nothing had been captured on it, almost transparent. Well, film is magic really. Something…

[raulpc] week 23 – Pinhole 6×17

My first try on this amazing camera, the RealitySoSubtle 6×17, that I just start to love. Curved film plane and specialy the double pinhole for up or down horizon are the best features. So I took it off with Delta 100 inside, what else, and placed it on four feet fully stabilized, exposure and reciprocity…

[raulpc] week 9 – one wide

One more this week that is worth a few ones. Again in Abrantes, Portugal, sunny winter morning, looking at urban texture with my DIY 6×17, charged with beloved Delta 100, developed in PyrocatHD. Camera on tripod, yellow filter up front for contrast and add some weight on the sky. The way these large format lenses…

[raulpc] week 3 – 6×17

I always had this dream camera, those special 6×17 cameras! But they were always too expensive to buy, new or used, even today. After all these years, this year summer end, out of nowhere, I decided: I am going to build a 6×17 camera! I am not very resourceful but I can manage around the…
