With the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom and exposures averaging 6 seconds, last month’s World Wide Pinhole day was truly a perfect pinhole~icious time. I met 9 1/2 of my friends at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, it was one of the few hot and sunny days we’ve erratically had here in NYC. Shooting with Fuji Instant 4×5 backs and the Lensbaby Zone Plate, newcomers to the pinhole realm were able to easily get feedback on exposures and how to compose without a viewfinder. Pictured here is a selection of my favorite shots, click on them to make them larger and get more detailed info.
The next full moon is Sunday June 7th, and if you are in the New York area and want to brush up on your night photography skills come check out “The Fine Art of the Long Exposure” seminar that I will be giving twice on Wednesday June 3rd! The first talk will be at B&H’s Event Space from 11am-1pm and then 7:30 -9:30pm that night at the Flushing Camera Club. I’ve added about 30% new content and will feature images and insights from a recent trips to Prague and the Pearsonville Junkyard Workshop.
Time Exposed, my solo exhibit at John Allan’s Tribeca has been extended until June 11th. From there it will move to the John Allan’s at Saks 5th Ave for the summer before ending at the flagship John Allan’s Midtown. I hope to have another opening for the Midtown location this fall, so stay tuned.
And finally I just got back from the f295 Symposium in Pittsburgh. I’m still recovering from seeing so many amazing tintypes, dagguerotypes, and other alternative processes and visions from some of the top 21st Century Photographers. More images and info as soon as the film dries!
