Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival 2014

Since I shoot digitally for nearly all my work I thought if would be a change of pace to take a pinhole camera to New York City’s Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival. 

Realistically, this made little sense: exposures in bright sunlight are about a second long; people can’t easily stand still for that long; it’s crowded, and was going to get jostled a lot; it’s hard to hold a camera still for that long; … (There’s a reason why pinhole cameras are used a lot for landscapes, still lifes, cityscapes and the like.)

Undeterred, I ventured forth with a Zero Image 6 X 9 camera, a few rolls of Kodak Portra 400, and a monopod.

This is what I came up with.
