Pinhole Narrative assignment


Posted by Picasa

this is a collage of 35mm exposures that i shot on an experimental "matchbox pinhole camera" using 400 ASA black and white film. i was very surprised that i got any images at all out of this roll of film as i followed NONE of the rules for exposure timing. most of these exposures were shot inside a Costco Warehouse store in Danville, California and were given between 30 seconds and 2 minute exposures. the two shots of myself were taken in bright light sitting inside my car; thus were only given 5-15 second exposures. overall i was delighted that i got any images at all. whether i will attempt to do this again? i doubt it very much. i don't have the mind for all the mathematical calculations required to determine suitable exposure times or pinhole sizes.
