I bought a Holga HPL-C Pinhole 0.25mm Prime Lens for Canon Digital SLR Camera. Why? Just for the heck of it 🙂 I wanted to try and experiment (as I always do) with lights and stuff. And I read about this Pinhole camera’s and how we can make a pinhole for ourselves. Since I didn’t have the tools or the time to do it myself, I went and bought one. I received it today (i.e. yesterday) and spent some time playing with it. It is so small and weightless.
I tried taking a selfie (yes, you can do that if you have a tripod , a timer (not mandatory though) and lots of time to experiment) and was happy with the result, but then since I ain’t photogenic I promptly deleted it. Then went on with my day and while hearing the song “Up” by Olly Murs and Demi Lovato, I ended up noticing two lines and converting them to a small image. I drew that in a paper and then realized in the evening that I can try to photograph that using my pinhole lens.
Here is the result of that taken through my Pinhole lens and edited a bit using Picasa. Not a good one by any measure, but I just started getting a hang of it. More to come once I get some good ones.
Just in case it wasn’t clear in the image. It says
You drew a question mark
But you know what I want
