Under My Thumb

Obviously I was “all thumbs” on this one.  I’m not crazy about the shtter mechanism on the Reality So Subtle pinhole.  The Zero Image 6X6 allows use of a remote shutter cable.  Unfortunately I did not think to just cover the shutter with my hand (there was a polarizer covering the shutter) before invading with my thumbs.  All trial and error, enjoyable….Exposure time was completely a guess from memory of other pinhole images and doing some crude math in my noggin, or just plain old randomness.  Unfortunately I forgot to put the center post into the film reel for development.  All of the images on the outside of the roll were blown out and the 5 that remained were probably affected also.  And then there were the dreaded sust bunnies!

35mm Film Shootist

Hi, I'm Martin a amateur photographer that shoots solely film. I like to use black & white film shot on my Leica M4-2 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life.
