“Just A Reminder….pinhole portrait”


Although I am not doing any pinhole portraits just right now, I do want to throw up a reminder that pinhole photography is not just for buildings and landscapes. This one was made with my 35mm pinhole SLR camera on Fuji Neopan 1600 film. When using an SLR with a pinhole body-cap on it, as I did here, it is just barely possible to somewhat make out the object being photographed. The only way I can do it is by keeping my ‘viewfinder eye’ closed till I am ready to make the exposure. Even then it helps if I shield my eye with one hand to cut down on the light getting to my eye and the viewfinder.
