View Full Version : I just won my first photography competition!
I just thought I would share the good news, seeing that site is a constant source of inspiration. The competition was nothing major (just a local one) but its nice to win something every now and then!
You would think the winning photo came from my leica m6ttl....well ironically the photo was made using a 35mm film canister, a soda drink can and a whole lot of insulation tape! total cost $2...makes wonder about
the photo can be viewed here
I didn't think you got that much sun in Dunedin.
Haha we don't hence the 3 and a 1/2 month exposure!
Congratulations! Anyway, do you perhaps have a picture of the actual "camera"? Sounds interesting.
"3 1/2 month exposure using 35mm film canister camera."
Ah, you are so modest. Surely this was a hand-held exposure? :-)
Seriously, congrats regarding the prize!
Pop Photo used to have a running column on what to use 35mm containers for. I saw a darkroom timer, and flashlight. I do not recall seeing a working camera!
If you care to post how you made the camera, we have a "Mad Scientist" forum... I would very much like to see this one on it.
Hi Brian, I actually don't have a camera made up at the moment. They seem ti disappear on me after each exposure, luckily I have a fair few black canisters with me!
you can view a similar camera here http://www.solargraphy.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=8&Itemid=9
That's really neat. Instructions and everything. We might need a new forum for this!
Congratulations. I saw that site once a long time ago and thought about trying it. Just never got around to it. Nice to see someone who has, and so successfully.
That's great! Congratulations. What a clever technique.
I was just wondering (coz I'm gonna do it this weeked - so thanks for reminding me) most of the shots there, including yours, are color. Since most of the color is usually developed in a lab, how do you go about handing in a tiny strip of film?
I'm gonna try to do it in B&W, unless there's some obvious great benefit to doing it in color.
edit: oh yeah, and is there some kind of a difference between "Solargraphy" and regular pinhole photography? Seems kinda the same.
edit 2: sorry, i guess I should read better before asking silly questions :) Photographic paper - got it! (what kind of photographic paper? :) )
There is so much fascination with Solography that I have no problem with it being a genre in itself :)
Nice photo Mr. EcoLeica
I will be in Dunedin in July :)
