3 .Making Photographs with the P66
?You don't take a photograph, you make it -attributed to Ansel Adams
If you've never used a film camera, if you've only used a smartphone or a digital point-and-shoot, welcome to real photography. Making pinhole photographs engages a necessary emotional and temporal involvement. With a pinhole camera and its tiny aperture, this creative act is slowed down, time is exploded, space is warped. There is no undo, no delete. After your negatives are finally processed, printed or scanned, you will remember your relationship with your photographic subjects. You will mourn failed shots, and your successes will lift you with pride and profound joy. Truly.
