Pinholed in Amsterdam – Reblog

I am Amsterdam
Whats the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Amsterdam?
Was your guess world wide pinhole photography day 2014?

What started as an amusing and light hearted discussion on twitter between Inge, Alex and Monica became a full scale pinhole meetup in Amsterdam. There was was a good sized group of us from all over the world. The sight of 13 pinhole photographers meandering very slowly around the streets of Amsterdam was a fun but surreal experience. Despite how it looks from the photo filled post below I really did not shoot very much during the event. I spent most of my time looking at cameras and chatting to people that I had only ever known through the Internet. There is talk of visiting the USA for the event next year – roll on WPPD 2015

Alex did such a great job of distilling the feelings of the day over on his site that I suggest to get a full flavour of the day out you have a read of his blog.
Monica wrote a great bit about what happened when the full team from pinholeobscura.com met in person – spoiler alert – IT WAS AWESOME.

  1. Looking forward to next year!! These photos are awesome. You seem to have mastered the ultra wide angle of this camera. I’m kind of struggling with it.
