April 12, And the Rest of the Accidental Photon Sieve Photographs

These are some of the photos I took after photographing my 5×7 camera. These were also taken with the f/71 Skink photon sieve that I thought was the f/110 Skink pinhole mounted on my Canon IVSb2.

The film is Agfa Copex Rapid developed in caffenol.

Below is an illustration of a zone plate and a photon sieve. The photon sieve is on the right.

  1. Nice grain. I am going to have to find more out about a photon sieve. Interesting effect.


    1. Thanks! Photon sieves are somewhat similar to zone plates. Normally Agfa Copex is not grainy at all (it’s a microfilm), but I guess the combination of my overexposure and the photon sieve really brought the grain out. I don’t know how to post a pic to the comments so I’ll post a photon sieve pic to the blog.
