A Foggy Day For Pinhole Photography

Some years back i made a very basic pinhole attachment from a camera body cap. Then last summer i decided to stick it onto my DSLR and try it out at home by doing some figure photography. The blog of which can be seen here

From this i decided to buy a cheap body cap for my DSLR, drill a hole in the middle, and then tape some foil over it and poke a pin through. The hole isn’t properly measured, but that doesn’t really matter as the point isn’t to get a perfectly focused image anyway.

On a particularly foggy day recently i decided to take the camera out with me when i walked the dog, and i thought it was a good time to try out the pinhole attachment outdoors, especially as the fog would give a very minimal look to the images, which i particularly like in the first example….

The second is from a similar position as a photo taken with a regular lens on another very foggy day a few weeks ago that can be seen in a blog here.

There’s a high level of noise in these photos as i set the ISO to it’s highest which enabled me to just get away with taking them handheld, which is something quite unusual for pinhole photography.




About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
