Making progress happen / by Jana Uyeda

Good morning! Just a quick update today as it's Chinese New Year and I'm headed out to Chinatown for lion dances, dim sum and more. Come out if you can! A few months ago I decided to place my pinhole camera on the lazy susan at a dim sum restaurant just to see what the final result would look like.

I loved the final image but wanted to work a bit more on having something in focus while the camera rotated. A friend lent me a lazy susan and I did another experiment.

The beer can wasn't secure enough and I'm not sure I like these experiments with black and white film. I loaded Kodak Portra 400 and went for dinner at a pizza shop in Ballard to expose another frame while rotating the camera on a lazy susan.

It's getting better and I feel like some progress has been made.

I hope you're all staying warm and getting out to shoot today. Have a great weekend and I look forward to reading your posts next week. Mahalo!
