Pinhole on the road again

I took my wide angle pinhole Sharan on the road again. I used some Fuji Superia 200 and visited different places in Seoul. I guessed the exposure times and overexposed a number of the shots resulting in some color shifts. The photos that had too much of a color shift to fix I turned into black and white shots as you can see when you  scroll down.

This was probably my favourite photo of the roll. If you look at the path you can see the movement of the various hikers moving from right to left, especially the one person in a purple jacket.

These photos really work much better than the original color version.

The white ghost like figure is a person in a bunny suit. The pinhole is so wide it even captured our shoes.

No lens, just a hole

I took my Sharan pinhole wide camera out for some photos around Seoul. I thought I had cleaned up the frame from unnecessary tape, but the photos showed I didn’t. The tape was there to make sure the camera was lightproof which it very much was this time. No sneaky light shining on my film.


First up are some exposures at night. I think the exposure was around a minute or so. I should have written it down. But like I said before, negative film is pretty forgiving so night shots regularly turn up nicely for me.


The subject is Namdaemun, the famous ancient south gate of Seoul. Burned a couple of years ago, but now nicely restored.


The rest of the photos were taken all over Seoul. Usually with an exposure time of around 4/5 seconds. I cropped out the sprockets to give you a feeling that this camera really gives you a wide perspective.

Pinhole in the Netherlands

done1After a couple of years I gave the old Sharan pinhole camera a try again. This time it went okay. I timed the exposure times to about 7 seconds, counting in my head and considering they were mostly cloudy days ( what else to expect in the Netherlands?). The edge of the framing is weird because I added a whole bunch of black tape to prevent light leaks ( see here for that disaster). But I think I may have went overboard with it. I’ve cleaned up the tape now.  I also thought it would be interesting to show the sprockets. I feel it gives the image a bit more body, otherwise they are a bit skinny.

Accidental double exposure.
