In honor of (and in prep for) Worldwide Pinhole Day (which was last Saturday the 4/28 in case you missed it) I spent last Friday at Lenox Laser nestled in the lovely rolling hills of Maryland just outside of Baltimore. I was invited to present my work in the 1st Annual Pinhole Photography Seminar, “Rediscovering the Art of Pinhole Photography”
This all started in 2001 when I won first place in their pinhole contest. My winning shot is now included in the Daystar logo. Since then, optical engineer (guru and all around nice guy) Greg Solyar and I have been in contact and visited back and forth all while comparing notes about their photographic pinholes and slits.
Owner Joe d’Entremont, Gary, Rachel and Tom run a fantastic operation and produce, hands down, the very best photographic pinholes available.
I am eagerly looking forward to some forthcoming products as well!
Below is a sample of the work that was shown in my lecture using the Daystar dSLR Pinhole cap on a Canon 5DmkII.
