Pinhole Exposure

Pinhole exposure with the 8x10 box camera I made myself back when I was feeling a bit more crafty.
Exposure was in total about twenty seconds long. Ten seconds with the model in the frame and ten seconds without her exposed directly on a piece of direct positive paper. 

I had to "flash" the paper in the darkroom to get the contrast down which is also what creates the sepia effect. I am basically fogging the paper a little bit which helps the highlight from getting totally overblown all over the place.

Camera: 8x10 Pinhole
Film: Ilford Direct Positive Paper
Location: Portland, OR - Sauvie Island
