Roll 39 – seeing double

For roll 39 I decided to dust off the Holga and take it out on an adventure. Inge had just started a Double Exposure group on Facebook and asked me to help her be administrator. She’d posted some of her own Holga shots so I was inspired. I shot most of these on Portland. I…

Roll 38 – bushcraft on the secret island.

For roll 38 I took my Olympus XA out hiking with me, just for fun. I have said this before, but I love that little camera so much. It has become my favorite camera, hands down (aside from my Zero 4×5). It fits so easily in my pocket and doesn’t weigh me down when I…

Roll 37 -Camping at a haunted lake

For roll 37 I took my pinhole camera camping with me. We went to Little Crater Lake, which is a small (and deep) lake on Mt Hood. It was on a Sunday night and we had the entire campground to ourselves, which was kind of creepy. There are stories about the lake being haunted. According…

Roll 36 – An Adventure on the Mountain

For roll 36 I found myself and my pinhole camera on Mt Hood at a lake I’d never visited before. I have to admit, I don’t remember the name of the lake! But it was beautiful. It was quiet and serene. We thought about camping there the following weekend but decided on somewhere else. These…

Roll 35 – A pinhole adventure with friends

In August I began hanging out with two very talented Pinhole Photographers, Gretchen and Donna. We have since started having pinhole adventures once a month and it’s been a blast! For our first pinhole adventure we decided to visit Trillium Lake. I brought my Zero Image 4×5 and shot both large format film and 120…

Roll 32 – The Traveling Yashica

One morning at the end of September of last year my friend Inge told me about the Traveling Yashica project. She was going to join the project and thought I might be interested too. I did a quick Google search for the camera and took a look at what would be traveling around. I thought…

Roll 30 – WPPD film swap with Alex

Why hello there! I seem to be in a blogging funk lately. I just don’t have any words in me lately so I’ve been having a hard time motivating myself to write blog posts. Once again, I have been encouraged to keep on keeping on, so here I am. Luckily, this post was originally on…

Roll 29 – more pinhole at the beach.

Hi there! Boy, it’s sure been a long time since I’ve posted. I have been debating whether or not I should even continue this project. It’s not that I’m not taking photos, it’s just that I am terrible about being organized about it. I have been encouraged to keep posting so I will. I hope…

Roll 28 – Velvia and my Zero 45

When we took our trip to the Oregon coast I thought I would try shooting Velvia 50 in my pinhole camera and not cross process. I had never tried shooting slide film for it’s intended purpose. So I thought I’d give it a shot. Almost the entire roll was shot on the docks of Newport…

Roll 27 – Olympus XA and Cinestill

After seeing the wonderful results on 52 rolls, I wanted to try my hand at Cinestill too. I loaded it up in my new favorite camera: the Olympus XA, and headed to the beach for the weekend. Unfortunately, I am not immediately in love with the results I got with this film. There are a…

Roll 26 – A 3d Printed Pinhole camera

A few days before I left for Amsterdam I ordered a Schlem P6*6 3D printed pinhole camera from Todd Schlemmer. Todd lives in Seattle, a mere hop, skip, and Jump away from where I live near Portland. So I fully expected to receive the camera via mail after our trip. However, Todd was planning on going to Amsterdam…
