Twilight

July 23, 2017

This is a pinhole photograph.
Why to make pinhole photographs? Are they more artisan, more artistic? At last that shouldn't be the reason, for most of those considered art photographs aren't coming from a pinhole camera. Actually they don't seem to be very popular.
Making a pinhole camera and putting it to work was a kind of achievement. But at last what matters is the photographs you get from it.
Perhaps all that's just talking about how detailed a photograph should be - some pinholes can do it really sharp - .And what for. Or which photograph sould be very detailed or not, depending on what you're expecting from it.
Photography always wanted to excell in details, though pinhole cameras are as old as photography itself, or even more if taking into acount the dark chamber already known in the ancient times.
Calling this kind of work experimental is rather vague. Every camera is experimental till the moment you know how to use it and what you can get from it. After that moment it doesn't matter at all at that respect if being a pinhole camera or some other one. But results are very different.
I don't mind that very much really, and like using that kind of camera from time to time. But just that wouldn't make my photographs having this or that other style.
This "twilight" is made in any case of light and space. It couldn't be in any other way, despite the camera. It seems belonging to an anbiguous territory between day and night. And that's why I like it.

What next

July 2, 2017

This is a free site. When deciding displaying a selection of works instead of keeping on making of it the blog it was before the space for images became full.

As being the four posts with photographs quite representative, still the "old stuff" one showing some works made long time ago is obviously not so alive today.

Thus some of that post ones are to be removed. And instead one commented photograph will make a new post from now on. It'll be weekly removed to be replaced by some other.

Thank you
