The 2 Things Challenge this week was Pin/Hole. Saturday rolled around and I still did not have an interpretation, so I jabbed a pin through an index card and made a hole.
Not terribly satisfying, although perhaps a fairly neat photo. Then, even though Saturday was a very busy day, I got a wild hair to try to make a pinhole camera. I had an idea what I wanted to do, but it took a little playing around and internet study to finally get what I wanted. The viewing screen is a piece of waxed paper taped over a square hole in the back of a sealed up cardboard box.
The "lens" is a pinhole punched in a small piece of Diet Coke can using the same pin and taped over a smaller hole in the other end of the box.
The subject, since by now it was 9:00 at night, was the light fixture by my back door. This first image is not from the pinhole camera, but using my SLR.
Next I set up the pinhole camera and photographed the viewing screen. I thought it was kinda neat. This image is straight out of the SLR.
Then I went for a more wide angle shot (backed up.)
Considering the viewing screen was waxed paper and not frosted glass, the box was taped up cardboard, the pinhole was punched in a piece of Diet Coke can with a pin instead of machined, and I put it all together in about an hour, I was sufficiently satisfied to put it here.
