Our study of the escaped entity of the Hall.

Beautifully executed nude portrait by Brandon Witzel.
First try developing film in Caffeinol. Straight scan from neg Ilford Delta100. I’ll be doing this a LOT more.
I learned today that a model who I have found to be a great inspiration, and have been fortunate to have in front of my lens on two occasions, has been suffering for some time with an inoperable brain tumor, and has been deteriorating rather rapidly. Leah, if your time here is short I hope you know how many people you have inspired and the positivity you have brought to this earth. I am honored to know you….
I’m looking through older pinhole images in the hopes of putting together a gallery show of only pinhole nudes. I don’t think I’m quite there yet, but this image stood out to me so I thought I would share it.
This image was made on Direct Positive paper with an 8 x 10 wooden pinhole. Total exposure was the better part of twenty minutes, some of it with the model laying on the door and some of it with the same model standing off in the distance. During development, I flashed the paper for a few seconds with regular light which tends to “fog” Direct Positive Paper and lowers the contrast while giving it a sepia tone.
I won’t deny I kind of wish I would have made this image on regular sheet film as it is an image very much worthy of reproduction.
