Brandon Dole from Deep River, Connecticut, is an aspiring photographer with an interest in pinhole cameras. Pinhole photography is lensless photography — a tiny hole replaces the lens. Light passes through the hole forming an image in the camera. These photos were taken at Essex Steam Train, Essex, Connecticut.

“I like the pinhole camera because it uses a simple process and helps make interesting photos,” Brandon says. His hobbies include photography, aviation, computer technology, and vintage cars.

    Brandon – you have a keen eye. Your photos capture the romance and history of the once mighty railroad industry. Keep up the fine work.

    I love to see young people taking a real interest in things and doing something. The sad thing is you are the exception. I wish there were more like you.

    I’m glad to see that you use a view camera, the results speak for themselves.

    Brandon,

    Love your photos and am so glad you have such a wonderful eye. Keep up the good work. You are on the road to becoming a professional photoprapher.

    Love the “sepia” effect ala Ansel Adams! Timeless photos. At 66 I have been using digital for the last 10 years. When I grow up, I want to be just like you. LOL

    Very cool pics. Did U make the camera your self? I learned to love trains from my dad, and it’s great to see someone from UR generation that seems to love them as much, especially the old steam ones! Keep up the great work!

    Great job – wonderful idea! Very “historical” looking or of the times. Tones (sepia) were great idea to use too!

    Keep up the good work!
