New additions to the gallery.

There are two new additions in my gallery.  The first is in the Pinhole Effect collection.  The second is a new photo in Lines.

A word about Pinhole effect:

Pinhole  photography is lensless photography. A tiny hole replaces the lens. Light passes through the hole; an image is formed in the camera.  Basically a pinhole camera is a light-tight box with a tiny hole in one end and film or photographic paper in the other and  can be homemade with an oatmeal box.  The resulting  images are softer – less sharp – than pictures made with a lens. The images have nearly infinite depth of fieldand they tolerate little enlargement.

The photos in my Pinhole Effect collection are digital and converted using a software called SilverEfex Pro.  I love the softer quality of the print (however, I do sharpen the image) and the way the light focuses on the subject with the edges darkened.  I chose a border for the photos which suggests they were hand printed and I print them on inkjet photo paper that resembles traditional fine art photography. I have chosen not to digitally enlarge the prints beyond what would have been acceptable with film.  They are 6" x 9". 

A folio of the six prints, unsigned, can be purchased for $95. Individual signed and numbered prints are $125.  Contact me on my contact page.
