pinhole





today i finally picked up the developed photos of my DIY pinhole experiment and i was really surprised that so many of them actually got quite good! i experimented a little bit with exposure time and found out that 2sec (1)  or 3sec (2-4) are best on cloudy days, on sunny days i would go for 2-1sec or even less than 1sec if it's really bright -beach or sth- on really dark and rainy days i would go for 3-5sec. the last photo is -incidentally- a double exposure but i'm really surprised that this works with pinhole cameras, too! i think this super simple pinhole camera is just amazing, the quality of the pictures isn't bad at all if you remeber that this thing is just a cardboard-box with a tiny hole in it! try it out, it's so much fun and a completely new expirience in photography!
