Try A Pinhole Lens for that 70’s Look

Photo-A-Day #2176

I bought a No Dust Pinhole Body Cap for my camera. It has an fstop of 150. I had not used it since I purchased it over a year ago. I thought to myself, that would be a cool thing to have. I wasn’t sure exactly what I would get from it but it sounded like a cool gadget. It is a pretty cool little gadget to have because it turns your DSLR into a pinhole camera. It also showed me that I have a ton of dust on my sensor, yikes.

It took me a little while to figure out the best combination of speed and ISO to get the shot I wanted. The thing is I thought that I wanted more light on the image and so I set the shots for longer and longer shutter speeds. I didn’t like how that looked when I finally got to see the images on the computer rather than the camera itself. Here are some examples of the shots I took but didn’t like as much as today’s shot.

200 ISO 1 second exposure, too dark.

100 ISO 20 second exposure Too Light.

100 ISO 10 Second Exposure, pretty decent, liked the one for today more.

When using a pinhole camera a tripod is a must. A bright day is not a bad idea either, clean your sensor of dust and use either the remote or the timer on your camera.

This is my own personal DSLR camera that I bought half of. My mother-In-Law bought the other half as an investment of great photos of her grandchildren. With over 26,000 photos of Eva and counting, I’d say she got great ROI on the investment. The opinions about them are 100% mine.

Disclosure: I received a number of Seagate devices including the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive, GoFlex Home, GoFlex TV and GoFlex Net. I’ll be talking about these devices in the coming months. The opinions about the devices are 100% mine.
