    These images demonstrate why Pinhole technology is a useful tool for expressive, experimental photography, and a lot of fun to play around with! I like them.

    Ah, my brother and I made a 4x5 Schleica in the 70s, from a Schlitz can. Result below. I imagine your camera is somewhat similar.

    Shot behind the Photo Center, Alpena, Michigan, in 1973. Image is severely cropped to eliminate vignetting and extraneous data.
    Don't need no stinkin' Linhof!
    The tripod was a concrete parking stopper, with a foot on top of the camera for stabilization.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    Thanks all! mdarnton, yes, I'd imagine your "Schleica" was very similar to what I've been using. These two views were taken with a 3D printed P5 camera, courtesy of the very generous Paul Barden. A precision pinhole and film holder makes things much more predictable.

    I also changed my chemistry here, adding some iodized table salt to the Caffinol-C recipe so as to reduce fogging. I think it helped? Maybe.

    Awesome Michael. I lived in Alpena in 1973. Hadn't yet picked up a camera!
