Pinhole photography

Originally uploaded by spinnerin.

Between the fun of all those Vegas pictures, and ogling heyoka’s photos on Flickr, I developed a sudden lust for pinhole photography. This was taken using a modified disposable point & shoot camera (ISO 800 film).

Note: If you’re going to try this sort of camera modification, get the kind without a flash, if at all possible. People find it unsettling when they hear “ouch!” followed by a bright spark on the other side of the room. (I did have the sense to use a screwdriver to short the capacitor, but it was hard to tell where I could touch safely to hold the camera while doing so. My thumb is startled, but fine.)
