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.
