I own three 4×5 pinhole cameras, but my favorite is still the Ilford Titan 4×5. I like it for its ruggedness, being made of hard plastic that does well in the wet Pacific Northwest where I live. I am surprised how sharp it is. As this year comes to a fast and furious end I plan to do much more 4×5 in 2019, both pinhole and with my Wista camera. Now that I am able to develop my black and white images at home there is nothing stopping me from using my film stash.
It may be a bit early for News Years Resolutions but I have set a goal to finally finish my gas station book of platinum prints. I thought if I put this out there then I will be held accountable to finish my many projects.
So here from the archives are a few of my favorite long exposures made with the Titan camera.
These were taken in Donald, Oregon:
These were taken at Trillium Lake near Mt Hood:
This is the bridge along the old highway above Donner Lake, California:
The heads are part of an art installation at my local transit center:
This image was made at Newspace Center for Photography, now closed and missed:
(all these images were made on Ilford film and I developed at home using Ilfosol developer and a MOD 54 tank)
