Calder’s masterpiece, unwrapped three ways: I think this is a good start to a series about Chicago’s public art. There is certainly plenty to work with, not only in the Loop. I’m sure this won’t be the last time I’ll be visiting the Flamingo, either. On the technical side, I’ve started using film, which gives […]
First sun we’ve had for a while, but since I wasn’t downtown, I had to settle for el tracks. I’m making progress – my improving ability to plan the framing has made the images somewhat easier to read, and the exposures are within some reasonable range. The subject matter isn’t quite as all-enveloping as Loop […]
I got out to take the first batch of images with the new cameras. The smaller pinholes (around 0.2mm) are clearly sharper than the last batch. I’m getting a bit more vignetting due to the lower ratio between hole size and stock thickness, but it’s still pretty manageable. Just for grins, here are cameras 1 […]
Or loops-de-Loop, so to speak. Full circle. I think I may be on to something, even if it’s still hard to see in these. And oh, yes, please pardon the dust. I will make all efforts to eradicate it in the future.
So I’ve been playing with anamorphic panoramic pinhole cameras, and I’m starting to get passable results. This time, just as an experiment I re-wrapped the strip image to polar coordinates, which basically restored it to something resembling a normal view. The first image is what I got from the camera, the second I got by […]
