My views on the above and some…
I was already having ideas about using my Pinhole lens and playing around with it more, because the last time I took a portrait, the focus wasn’t that good. So I wanted to practice it at home with my small items and see how they came out. And after more than a couple of weeks, I still hadn’t time to start on that. But when I saw Sylvain’s prompt for this week i.e. Vintage, I knew it was time 🙂 I took out my dad’s very old Agfa Isolette, which is broken and doesn’t work anymore. I told him that it was my inheritance 😉 and that I am not letting it go (because he was about to throw it in the bin 😯 )
So here is my attempt at pinhole images using my Holga pinhole lens. Had to use the flash and a bright light to get this effect and this was was exactly on my mind. Might seem a little bit overexposed, but I had this effect when I imagined it and I am happy with the end result too. I did have to process it a bit. And since I had to use the floor as my tripod, I think that helped too. I should remember to use my tripod here on with my pinhole lens.
