Inside this issue
After David O’Brien’s wonderful article “In Praise of Film Pinhole Photography” in the last issue, I was inspired to get out and play with a pinhole camera myself. Instead of buying a new camera, I figured I could use a pinhole on my existing cameras (large format and medium format). However, when it came to buying a ‘pinhole’ I was faced with a decision of which size to purchase. Being the geeky sort I figured it would be interesting to get hold of a range of pinholes and test just what difference the sizes made. What surprised me more than the results was what fun it was and how playing was also a part of this photography thing. A big thanks to Tim Norgate from Pinhole Solutions for sending me over a set of different sizes. Now I’ve got the experimenting out of the way it’s time to have a play with the results on film and I look forward to showing the results in a future issue!
If you’ve been playing with pinhole or have been using it for a while, please show us your results on our Facebook page.

A black burned landscape with small dead animals. At first sight this probably does not sound like an attractive subject for a photo project. Nevertheless, when he heard from the wild fire in a national park close by, Theo Bosboom was curious enough to take a look. And he was glad he had taken his photo gear because what he found was dreary and gaunt, but at the same time very photogenic. The devastation On April 20, 2014, I saw the more
I can't quite remember why and when I decided to explore the watershed. I thought there may be a watershed in Wiltshire, my home county – there are after all rivers that flow in different directions. more
