World Pinhole Day 2017

Today is World Pinhole Photography Day, so, as I can’t take any Pinhole photos today, I thought that I might share an old one I took. The shot below is a long exposure (40 minutes or so) pinhole image taken with a cardboard camera on 35mm film. To get this image, I attached the camera to the trolley and pushed it around our local supermarket as we did the weekly grocery shopping. I then processed this in my darkroom and scanned it for uploading. I thought this shot was a fun use of a pinhole camera, and that it might yield an interesting result. Pinhole photography is something that I am interested in and I hope to get better at it over time. One of the many things that I like about pinhole photography, is that it makes you see things in a different way, it is also good exercise for your photographic skills. I shall be adding posts about how to create pinhole photos in the future.

If you want to learn more about Pinhole Photography I have left the link to the World Pinhole Day site below:
