Last weekend I started a pretty interesting experiment: The Pinhole Camera.
You can create a Pinhole camera all by yourself, but I decided to try it out for the first time in a much easier way, just using my DSRL camera and replacing the objective by a pinhole. There are several links on the internet explaining you how to do this, and it is actually really easy and fast: All you need is a thick cardboard, some aluminum foil, black paint and something to make a hole into the cardboard (I used a nail).
Here are good links explaining how to do this:
They always tell you to use your body cap and make a hole into it, but I really didn't want to "destroy" my only body cap, so I just tried it out with a cardboard and surprisingly, it works.
The size of the pinhole I did was about 3mm, but I am planning to try different pinhole sizes in the future, since the only thing I am going to need is different cardboards. I took all the pictures on a very sunny day and when the sun was the highest, but I think it is also possible to take the pictures with less light if you experiment a little bit with the pinhole size, ISO and shutter speed. The pictures are all a little blurred and I am sure you can have much better results if you experiment a little bit more, so (hopefully) much better pictures are coming soon!
P.D. Para los que vivan en Buenos Aires: Aviso medio a ultimo momento, pero mañana a las 19.00 hs es el desfile de muestra de mi Universidad en el Centro Metropolitano de Diseño (CMD).
