Anamorphic Pinhole Re-entry / by Jana Uyeda

Well hi there! 

I've been out of shape shooting film but I finally got my gear together and decided to develop a few rolls I shot at the Herbert H. Warrick Jr. Museum of Communications. My fixer was dead and I had to re-learn loading medium format onto my reels this morning but I got them done. 

The museum is full of rows upon rows of switches and telephones. 

You can probably tell I was shooting my anamorphic pinhole camera with Fuji Neopan Acros. I was expecting it to be dark in the museum but it was surprisingly bright. Most of my exposures were between 3 - 5 minutes.

The staff at the museum are fantastic! They were extremely helpful, took me through the history of the equipment and even organized a few demonstrations. I would definitely recommend a visit if you're in the area.

I'm working to get back into the swing of pinhole again. My laptop was out of commission so I've spent the last few months shooting instant film.

Thankfully I just got my new MacBook Pro and it's great to edit images and share online again. If we haven't connected be sure to find me on Twitter or check out my feed on Instagram where I've been posting my instant photography and triptychs using Fujifilm Instax Mini.
