Aloha Zoneplate Still Life Plumeria by Crunchy Footsteps

Aloha Zoneplate Still Life Plumeria

homemade gingerbreadcam camera (with homemade zoneplate) paper negative, 3 minute exposure, developed in Caffenol C, colorized in Photoshop

It has been a long time since I had a zoneplate image to share! I haven't had much luck with my exposures, as I learn this zoneplate's characteristics.

If I remember right, this zoneplate has 10 zones, and the first 2 are darkened. The flowers in focus are about 4 inches away from the aperature.

Aloha!

I originally planned on a 27-minute exposure, and walked away. Then I forgot about it for a little while. It turned out to be a good thing. (-:

It's the Supermoon of June! (2013) 

This is a composite shot of Supermoon- one shot to have the pine needles in focus, and another shot of the moon in focus.  I wish my digital camera had the depth of field that my pinhole cameras have- then maybe I could get it all in focus with one shot.  Maybe....  (-:

It's been awhile since I posted, as you see, but I'm back. (-:

I've made a few flower still life pinholes this summer, and have colorized them, too. Here is the black-and-white version of my daughter's birthday orchids...

I'm digging the still life work! 'Tis the season for flowers and growing things. (-:
