Pinhole Photography, Ohio 2009

Youngstown Ohio, Pinhole Capture 2009
On a recent trip to Ohio to meet my girlfriend's family, Liz took me around to many of the abandoned buildings in this once-thriving industrial city. I documented many of these locations with a Holga 35mm pinhole camera. These were all shot handheld with a minimum 10 second exposure. I opted not to use a tripod in order to give them a more painterly, organic texture. I processed the film in my kitchen and then scanned the negatives with my Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED.
