What Can You Fit Through A Pin Hole?

January 11, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Enough light to make some nice images.  For Christmas, I received a Zero Image 4x5" film pin hole camera.  Pinhole cameras are the oldest photo technology.  No lens, just a tiny pinhole.  Long exposures.

This camera is 25mm for 4x5 inch format (about 8mm in regular photo aperture).  By adding additional frames and deepening the camera, you can add 25mm for each frame.  I have the camera and two additional frames; thereby having 25mm, 50mm and 75mm focal lengths.  One advantage of a pinhole camera is that everything is in focus, near or far.

These photos are four of the first eight exposures taken and developed.  I was nicely surprised at the outcome, and I consider these to be a result of "educated serendipity".  All four were taken at 25mm, very wide angle and very close.  Working with a pinhole camera is going to be fun!
