Night time exposure in Amsterdam with a view on the Old Church (oude kerk) during dusk.
Daytime long exposure (one minute plus) of the grachten of Amsterdam. People, boats, anything moving disappeared and turned the water nice and smooth.
Long Exposure at Scheveningen. Not really sure why I left it in color, its tinted and doesn’t really add much to the image. Also the water didn’t smooth out as nicely as I expected. Should have close the aperture more and gone for at least a 4 minute exposure.
Long exposure at the Dam with a view of the Palace. Lots of tourists around and street performers who all slowly turn blurry and invisible.
Minimalistic sunset over Scheveningen Pier which is for sale for 1 euro. (the pier not the photo).
GIF taken at Kinderdijk, one of the major tourist attraction where you can visit windmills.
The following are taken with my golden half and its plastic lens. I don’t remember the film which was either Hema film ( Dutch department store branded film) or Fuji Superia. Taken all over the place in Europe. Because the golden half is a half frame camera it is easy to take a lot of photos as you get 72 exposures of a normal roll of 36 frame film.
After 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.
And as I have mentioned before, don’t forget to edit your photo’s.
Accidental double exposure.
