What can I say, I should have taken more pinhole photos when we were in Florence. This is of course Piazza Santa Croce, and we lived right around the corner in Borgo Santa Croce 7. This photo was made with my wooden Santa Barbara pinhole camera, using enlarging paper in a 4×5 film holder. The camera can be used with those film holders or the film/paper can just be inserted into the back of the camera. I like sticking 5×10 sheepts of enlarging paper into the camera so that the paper is concave. It makes for a funky negative.
This was made before I had a computer or scanner, and thus did not realize how great paper negatives respond to being scanned and ‘processed’ in Photoshop. For me it is truly a joy to see them come alive that way. I get better prints that way than if I try and make a contact print in the darkroom.
