Pinhole Day 2018

This year I had quite the eventful pinhole day! I had intended to go outside with my dark bag, film and Ilford Obscura 4×5 pinhole camera and shoot the neighborhood gardens which are in full bloom. Unfortunately it happened to be a bit rainy out so instead of bringing all of my pinhole equipment outside I decided to just reload in my apartment and go up and down the elevator a few times. As I walked outside to take my first shot I noticed a random guy staggering and almost falling down the sidewalk outside my building, he even had blood running down his face!  Another concerned citizen and I decided to call an ambulance for him so he could get some help and hopefully avoid more catastrophe! About 35 minutes later I finally got down to taking some Pinholes. To find exposure, I used the Pinhole Assist app, but because of the distracted start I had I did make the mistake of forgetting to compensate for the outdatedness of the Fuji NPS 160 I was using, because of this my pinhole photos came out slightly under exposed. It also annoyed me that they weren’t sharp, next time I use a tripod!  I also ended up taking some of my pinholes indoors because going up and down my flippin elevator DID get tedious!!
