Project 365-ish: April 26, 2013
Bathroomcam: preparing for Worldwide Pinhole Day 2013
bathroomcam pinhole camera, image photographed with DSLR camera, 6400 ISO, 1/6 sec
Since I can't pick this camera up and move it to an interesting place to photograph (wild thought, that!) I decided to make the view more interesting than just the tree at the far side of the backyard. So here is George, our life-sized plastic Halloween skeleton, having a lounge under our groovy lounge umbrella. (I thought very much of art_y_fotos, and his dinosaur compositions, while putting this scene together)
Back inside the camera, I taped up a 20x30-inch posterboard over the shower wall, trying to decide if I should frame the shot horizontally or vertically. I'll end up covering this board with 5x7-sized photographic paper, to record the image, and develop these in caffenol.
I put this image in photoshop, and gray-scaled it, to look more like the image I might get. (praying for a decent exposure, and that nothing falls off the wall while exposing) I think George needs more contrast on his body- like perhaps a Hawaiian shirt?
