Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera test 3 previous posts: – Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera test 1 – Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera test 2 It has been a long time since I have shared some results of my pinhole photography testing. Today I thought I would continue with some testing I had done with my very own handmade 5×7 pinhole camera. As with most of my pinhole self-portrait images, I love using a black as my background. I have said many times […]
For the next few posts, I might sound like a broken record but it’s determination that’s got me. I need 9, (my lucky number), Montreal Artists to complete my pinhole project.

Working on personal projects is something that I love to do. I have for the last year been working on a pinhole portrait project which is a series of creative portraits of Montreal artists. Would you like to collaborate and be part of this project Montreal?
Summer is coming to an end and I had made myself a promise. Before this summer is to end, I will have photographed at least one person outdoors using my large format camera. This is not a comparison or debate but there is no Photoshop, filters or actions used in this process which means there is a lot of love that goes into every step.

Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera Test 2 In case you missed the first part of this series: Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera Test 1 In a previous post, I had mentioned that the camera I had built had a light leak and I was debating whether I should fix it or not. Sometimes light leaks can add a nice affect to images but after doing a few more tests I decided to fix it after all. I realized that I did […]
Handmade 5×7 Pinhole Camera Test 1 I was finally able to rebuild a 5×7 pinhole camera that I had started last month. What had helped me out the second time around were the 5×7 film/paper holders that I had received in the mail last week. Mission accomplished! So you know it doesn’t end here right? I obviously had to test it out, and it seems that there is a light leak coming from the top end of the […]
Lumen Prints – Part 4 Previous posts on lumen prints: Lumen Prints – Part 1 Lumen Prints – Part 2 Lumen Prints – Part 3 In the beginning, I thought the paper that I was using with this technique was a “specialized” paper of some sort because of the light orange color tint I noticed the paper had. Thinking this was the case and wanted to be sure, I contacted Joterman Otero /(lumen_box), to find out exactly what paper it was […]
Lumen Prints – Part 3 Previous posts on lumen prints: Lumen Prints – Part 1 Lumen Prints – Part 2 In the last few weeks, I was able to really dig in deep with the lumen camera. I have learnt quite a bit during this time and I have come up with a few tips that I think can be valuable to you if you are thinking of giving this a try. Do not drench the paper in water. […]
