I was back in Ireland over Christmas and had a day set aside (27th Dec) to head off with a friend and shoot a few photos. I took along 5 rolls of Fuji Acros and my 6×17 panoramic pinhole camera, a camera I designed and built (and spent way too long getting to work properly!) The negative is huge at 6×17 cm, giving loads of detail and the ability to make very large prints. The downside is you only get 4 shots to a roll so each photo costs more than €1 in film costs alone!
The following photos were shot at Lahinch beach, Mullaghroe, the cliffs of moher and somewhere between Doolin and Fanore. Larger sizes can be viewed in Flickr (click on photo).
A couple of shots by Julian (he’s more of a people person!)
….I walked about 200m along the wall to keep my feet dry!
- 65mm focal length with curved film plane – the curved film plane keeps the film to pinhole distance constant, giving even exposure across the frame.
