Winter, Night, Photography

Posted 2009.12.13 11.22 in Photography by Stephanie

There’s something about night-time and snow. Dark sky, light ground. Quiet, cold. Still. It has a very particular feel to it.

A few nights ago, I took a few photos after everything was dark and quiet. I’m pleased with how they came out.

Looking out the front of the house, at the old church across the street…

Winter Night 1

Then out the back of the house, at my backyard…

Winter Night 2

Technical details: The camera was my 60 year old Zeiss Ikon Nettar, using GP3 Pan film at ISO 100. Processed for 7 minutes in TMax 1:4 developer.

Couple More Pics

I took a few more shots with my pinhole camera today. I’m still kind of amazed at how it works, and still chuffed to have made it myself.

There was only one glitch this time, when loading the camera, the leading edge of the film caught on some of the felt and dragged a bit of felt into the image. Otherwise it worked really well.

I was hoping the shot of the boat would turn out better – although I have an idea of the wide-angle-ness of the camera, I don’t have a good idea yet about how it frames the images. There were a few other shots I did that came out rather crooked – I don’t know if I need a rudimentary viewfinder, or just a level… At any rate, there’s no more technical issues I think – the issues are in learning to use it.

Rainy Day Photos

I had planned to go on another little excursion today to do some more photography, but Mother Nature had other ideas. So instead, I stayed under the shelter of my back & front porches and did what I could.

I took a few dozen shots, but these four really stood out. All were taken with a 30mm f/1.4 lens, wide open, and at shutter speeds ranging from 1/30 to 1/90. Other than resizing, the images have not been altered in any way.
