Previously, On Breaking Bad…

Yesterday I decided to take the bull by the horns and buy a home development kit for black and white film.  My Pinhole Moments project has developed into a hobby as well as a final year university project.

2015-01-19 15.50.56After researching developing black and white film at home I spoke with a few professionals and hobbyists, as well as YouTubing the heck out of it.  I thought, “yeah, I can do that” and went down to Silver Print in Elephant and Castle to look at the kits and chemicals.  They were very helpful and really friendly, I can’t recommend them enough!  I ended up buying the kit and chemicals and even developed my own 120 B&W film that very evening. (Results coming soon)

There is something beautiful and exciting about developing your own photos.  I did feel a bit like Jesse Pinkman mixing up the chemicals but that’s all part of the fun.

3D Print Your Knob

That got your attention!  No, I’m talking about the knob on my pinhole camera.

2015-01-15 13.47.57I designed and 3D printed the spool adapter and winder for my Pinhole Moments camera.  The spool is a standard spool that you get with any 120 film.  I designed the winder so there is a force fit that is strong enough to lock into position but easy enough to remove without Hulk-smashing the cardboard pinhole camera upon removal.

Fast Prototyping, Fast materials, Fast Learning

I used temporary methods that were adequate for the prototyping stages.

Although the light chamber will have printed inner walls, I used a thick marker pen to black out the chamber.

I plan to use transparent red acetate sheet for the shot number window.  Keen to test the camera and with plenty of post Christmas sweets lying around, I used some clear red wrapping from a Quality Street chocolate.
