“We Can Pinhole That”

I have mentioned in the past that I don’t have a lot of experience with pinhole photography, but I try to do a pinhole exposure on each roll I shoot with one of my Diana F+ cameras (they have a built in pinhole.)┬áMy pinhole photography friends post photos to Instagram with the tag #wecanpinholethat, usually of their camera set-up while they are making their exposure (holla, Moni!) I did the same when I made my most recent pinhole exposures, posting the photos to Instagram. I thought I’d bring those photos over here and show them along with the actual photo I made with the Diana F+. As usual, I metered using a handheld meter, then used Mr. Pinhole to find the right exposure time.

Exposure time, approximately 22 seconds

I have been surprised at my good luck at getting good pinhole shots with my Diana. I’ll have to start doing more of them, maybe even an entire roll of pinhole photos one day!
