Pinhole Photography

An interesting article on Pinhole Photography, its history, as well as directions for making your own Pinhole camera! A fun winter/spring project to wile away the hours until the snow melts….. Here are a few very cool images I found online of pinhole images, as well, for your viewing enjoyment:

Elya

Newborn babies melt me. I love their earnestness, their freshness, and especially how cozily their bodies fall naturally back into the most compact of positions, the fetal position. It is simply irresistible to me.

It was with a great amount of joy, therefore, that I went to photograph little 3-week old Elya, the same little one I had photographed prenatally, in her mama’s tummy. Elya was sweet and interested and demanding, and let me know when she had had enough of my camera in her face for the day. As beautiful as Elya was for the official shoot, some of my favorite photos were unposed, taken during “breaks” when Jonna and Peter (aka Mom and Dad) were attempting to calm little Elya down.

Thanks, Elya, for letting me take some of your very first portraits! I couldn’t have asked for anything more in a model. Enjoy a few shots from our session…
