boston, ma / pinhole photograph by james smith

Big Smith is an incredible photographer. He works largely with pinhole images and often constructs his own site-specific pinhole cameras from cardboard and found materials. This photo is a favorite of mine and part of a show he put together a few years ago called Ground Speed which studied time and movement in the landscape. He is very talented, I'm a lucky girl.

  3. Love this! I've always wanted to make my own pinhole camera but have yet to do it. So cool that he's had his own show, too!

  4. Very very awesome. Making a pinhole camera is on my list of things to do this summer... along with 10,511 other things.

  5. Love this. I've always been interested by pinhole cameras, but never had the ability or know-how to construct one. You're a lucky lady, but he's for sure a lucky guy to have a lady such as yourself. :)

  6. Fascinating! It's so nice to hear couples speak so highly of each other... and I'm willing to bet Big Smith thinks he's pretty luck too!

  7. I love time-lapse photos. They make me feel like I got to be a ghost in that moment. Also, could you guys get any cooler? You are both wicked talented.
