18x24cm

First light (as they say in astronomy) for my new/old 5×7″ Rittreck View camera which I converted to 18x24cm.

There is nothing like moving up a format size (or two) to get a new perspective over bulk and weight.

First Light

It was late afternoon at a beach in Larnaca, and I was looking for something interesting to shoot with my newly made 18x24cm pinhole camera.
This was definitely not the best subject matter for it, but I thought why not; let’s give it a try.

So I made a couple of 8sec. exposures with the young guy balancing on his slackline. He seemed happy and at peace.

Happy new year!
