The Estenopeico’s Decalogue, According to Fefo

1) Un estenopeico,no compra cámaras, se las hace.

2) A un estenopeico, generalmente le regala una cámara, otro estenopeico.

3) Un estenopeico si eventualmente, tiene que comprar una cámara, será estenopeica.

4) A un estenopeico, déjalo libre, porque en el espacio de la libertad, es donde mejor esta.

5) Nunca le preguntes a un estenopeico cuantas cámaras tiene (no tiene idea de cuantas tiene…. o tendrá).

6) Un estenopeico, no se olvida una cámara en un poste, está haciendo una solarigrafia.

7) Para un estenopeico, todas las fotos estenopeicas están buenas o muy buenas o impresionantemente buenas.

8) Para un estenopeico, solo dos o tres fotos estenopeicas, son malas, pero algo de bueno seguro tienen.

9) A un estenopeico lo entiende, otro estenopeico mucho, alguna persona más, otras no lo entienden.

10) Un estenopeico, no compite, comparte.

1) A pinhole photographer doesn’t buy cameras, he makes them.

2) A pinhole photographer usually gives a camera to another pinhole photographer.

3) If a pinhole photographer eventually has to buy camera, it will be a pinhole camera.

4) Let a pinhole photographer go free, because freedom of space is better for this.

5) Never ask a pinhole photographer how many cameras he has. He has no idea how many he has (or will have).

6) A pinhole photographer won’t forget a camera on a pole; he’s doing a solargraph.

7) For a pinhole photographer, most pinhole photos are good. Or very good. Or really, really good.

8) For a pinhole photographer, only two or three pinhole photos are bad (they gotta have some).

9) One pinhole photographer understands another pinhole photographer very well; others just don’t understand.

10) A pinhole photographer doesn’t not compete, he shares.

Q. o’ th’ D.: Marvin Gaye

“I’d been studying the microphone for a dozen years, and I suddenly saw what I’d been doing wrong. I’d been singing too loud. One night I was listening to a record by Lester Young, the horn player, and it came to me. Relax, just relax. It’s all going to be all right.”

Pinhole Day Is Coming

We’ve demonstrated a number of times how quick and how easy it can be to make a pinhole camera; we’ve also seen examples of how specialized a camera can be designed. Now is the time to do it for World Wide Pinhole Photography Day.
