Alternative Process

We've been experimenting with some very "alternative" materials for image making. See more images and get the details here.

We're planning some more tests using the photo sensitive cabbage dye so stay tuned.

Light Through a Pin Hole

I've been experimenting with a home made pinhole lens the past couple of days. So far the I'm pleased with the digital images I've made using it on the Nikon D200.

In addition to making the above digital image today, I put the lens on my F3 and made a few images on black & white film while I was out running errands this afternoon. It will be interesting to see what comes out when I process the film.
