Catching up on my blog, I’m posting another Lunar triptych from the March 21st full moon. This was a new camera I had built for doing triptychs. The new camera allows some adjustment to the relative view of each pinhole. Actually, it is 3 cameras mounted to a single bracket.

This is a beautiful triptych!
absolutely gorgeous! it’s amazing what our naked eye doesn’t see! good thing there is pinhole photography!
Amazing triptychs! You do very nice pinhole work.
Fabulous and inventive. This really made me stop in my tracks. It makes the world appear just like the wonderful and mysterious place it really is but which we so often ignore.
Amazing results, could be nice if you try with more nights.
Hi! First congratulations the picture is greate!!! I have some questions,
1) this pinhole camera use paper or film?
2) if it uses paper, after the exposure do you scan the paper such us in solarigraphy or use quimics as in normal pinhole photography? Sorry my english I did my best Thanks
Hi Veronica. This triptych was made using black & white film rated at ISO 100. I have tried using paper in the past, but have never gotten a good image with paper. Paper is much slower than film and does not record the moon’s path very well.
