Roxy Russell

Ness Captured

This is a two week pinhole photograph. I made a camera with a drinks can, black paint, a pin hole and Ilford multigrade paper, taped it to a fence by Stogh beach in Ness (Isle of Lewis) and left it there for two weeks. I scanned in the nega- tive and on photoshop changed it in to positive. * The special commendation was awarded to Roxy’s image as it was unique amongst all the submissions. The image itself is not high impact or immediately apparent but it is photography at its most basic form, going back over 150 years. The image shows the path of the sun each day as it moved across the scene. The gaps are due to cloud where the sun was not visible. It is well worth finding out more about pinhole photography.
