pinhole parts see, the thing is i really don't want to fiddle around in the dark room, so i'm trying digital p/h pix -- yesterday's attempts used the long black tube in the foreground -- it was, at first 2 med bottles with open ends (foil p/h over the "lens" end) -- the cap, providentially, happened to be a bit over 55mm in diameter, thus fitting snugly into the digicam's adapter ring -- inbetween the 2 bottles there's a piece of mylar drawing film, on which the p/h image is formed -- i gradually lengthened the distance to the cam lens with a 3rd med bottle and then again with a black paper tube -- but still am not getting a sharp image -- soooo, i'm thinking: probably not a sharp image on the mylar, hence the oatmeal box etal and the building of a bigger p/h arrangement -- black paint on the inside of the boxes is now drying (the goya can, left over from chili, is merely a brush soaker :) -- tune in again sometime to see how things are going ...
