Sommergewitter

 

Kurz vor einem heftigen Sommergewitter überziehen dunkle Gewitterwolken den Abendhimmel, während die weißen Kumuluswolken im Osten das Licht der untergehenden Sonne reflektieren. Das “zugeschaltete Licht” in Verbindung mit dem Photonensieb reicht aus, um den Baum im Vordergrund nicht als bloße Silhouette im Abendlicht erscheinen zu lassen.

Kamera: Leica Objektiv: Skink Pinhole Pancake mit Photonensieb “Impressionist” f/71 Film: Fuji Superia ISO 100 Belichtungszeit: ca. 3 Sekunden

jurassic moment

An attempt to create a still life zone plate photo in subdued ambient light – no studio setting. The plastic monsters were sitting on a shelf, poorly lit with light from above. The pinhole equipped Leica opened its shutter for about one minute to rapture the scene. Those are the moments where a wire release cable is really useful.

Camera: Leica M
Lens: Skink Pinhole Pancake with Zone Sieve “Impressionist”

Lotus Pond – Leica pinhole with Ilford SFX 200

The Ilford SFX 200 black and white film with extended red sensitivity up to 740nm is one of the most popular near infrared films. When used without filter it performs like a standard medium speed monochrome film.
If you want to be creative, you must try it with a dark red filter. Blue skies can be rendered black and, depending on the light intensity, vegetation appears almost white.
And yes, it also works with pinhole lenses ! This shot was taken at a lotus pond in bright sunshine.

Camera: Leica type Rangefinder
Lens: Wide Angle Skink Pinhole Pancake
Pinhole: 0.2mm
Film: Ilford SFX200
Filter: IR filter insert for Skink Pinhole Pancake (89B / R72)
Exposure time: approx. 3 seconds at noon
Manipulation: added sepia toning in Photoshop
