I love the act of pin hole photography, where you have little idea how to frame the shot because you don't have a viewfinder, and the part of guessing exposure, but if you use the pinhole formula(I don't remember) you can get a fairly accurate 'reading'. I shot a few pinhole photographs, but all with paper, though I never did contact print them.
to make it? not that long, the internet has alot of wonderful resources to the steps. figuring out the hole size of the aperture is the toughest part, and then getting the exposure time correct takes practice and time as well. best of luck!
hmm.. the negative approach is difficult because the film is SO SO SO sensative. the exposure times are ridiculously small.. best of luck with that then! i tried a few times, and realized the paper was my way to go. but i think if you keep trying with anything it'll eventually work
Yes, I got my first roll of negatives back the other day. The whole time when I was taking photos, I was just thinking, 'wow, I really overexposed that'. The majority of them however came out white! I was even using 400 film and had a relatively big hole in my camera.
Waow ! I just love the atmosphere of this picture...
Technically speaking, is this an unedited shot (I mean without " brushes effect " under Photoshop) ? I also have been playing with pinholes, but never had such a quality and richness of light, texture and blur effect... Thanks for sharing !
yes! completely untouched with photoshop. the blur came from sketchy developer which i think was a blessing actually!! with pinholes you just have to keep experimenting and doing it over and over! thanks for the response
Aren't pinhole camera's great fun? We did a project with them in my photography class. I should upload my images on here. Nice work. Fifteen minutes, eh? The most I exposed with one of mine was thirty seconds. Great job.
