Pinhole Test 1

The first batch of results from my coffee can camera.  These were taken about a month ago on Lake Martin.  Experimented with 14-20 second exposures.  As you can see, this was a complete failure.  I either have a light leak somewhere or the sunlight is bouncing off the sharp metal edges around the shutter opening.  It is back to the drawing board for the coffee cam. 

Meanwhile, I have converted my old Conley Model VII into a pinhole device while I keep an eye out for a new lens.  Through the miracle of Ebay, I bought an assorted set of vintage film holders – five of which actually fit the Conley.  Go figure.  Everything – mechanically, at least – is working better than I had imagined.  Its first outing was this past Saturday, and I am holding out hope that these new photographs (taken around Five Points South and Downtown Birmingham) will turn out halfway recognizable.
