- Tri-x and Rodinal aren't good friends. Stand developed, anyway. That's some ugly grain. I need to replace my gram scale so that I can start mixing d-76 again.
- A difference of 5 or 10 minutes in exposure time really means nothing in this scenario. That's a testament to the wide latitude of Tri-x and the developing characteristics of Rodinal.
- I'm still getting used to the perspective shift that occurs with pinhole. Note the table cloth pattern below, and how the distortion increases at the lower edge of the image. I need to start using that to my advantage.
- 6x6 on this particular model is more like 6x7-ish. Nothing else on this thing is exact, I don't see why frame size should be.
- In the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" category: Wide, panoramic images, 6x12, 6x18 are probably better shot with something that has a curved plane. The light falloff at the outer edges of those sizes are immense on a Zero Image.
- Can't wait until I can get out and shoot my next roll.
Here are all 12 images from our Christmas Day:
|When we watch TV, our TV is watching us back.|
|This was a 20 minute exposure.|
|15 minutes really is too long to show hand motion in a clock. I'll need to get it down to 2-3 and get in closer for a better effect. Still, the pendulum motion came out pretty cool.|
|I tried to place that snowman a lot more prominently in the image. I'm still learning perspective with this thing.|
|Wouldn't you know it, the glare from the window was right on Santa. Oh well.|
|Getting the table ready for Christmas dinner. Note how the perspective changes the closer you get to the camera.|
|Last frame. Some lingering snow in our back yard. More perspective commentary: This makes it look like we have a bigger back yard than we actually do. You'd be surprised at how close that fence actually is when you look out this window.|
