Introducing the last pinholes from 2011

4

All shot on different brands and types of silver halide darkroom paper. Exact date unknown. Location: near my neighborhood in Sofia, Bulgaria. All exposed in DIY metal cans and light-tight household boxes, capable of holding a pinhole on one side. No refractive optics involved. Enjoy:

    Nice pictures. What would be the exposure time for these? Minutes? Hours? Days? And how precise does on have to be with exposure time?

    @impaktor Thanks. Exposure time depends on the box, but with mine it is about 3-4 min for direct sun, 20-40 minutes for shade or cloudy sky, 4-6 hours indoors. The time is not critical, but overexposed are easier to correct than underexposure. If it is overexposed, you can halt the development by dropping the paper negative in the stop bath. If it is underexposed, you're in a bad position, since shadow detail is practically missing due to the much narrower latitude that paper has, compared to film.
