Holga 35mm Pinhole

Holga 35mm Pinhole

This roll took me more than 5 months to finish(from end of july 2012 to 3rd jan 2013). Mostly thrashy photos, but there are a few interesting ones I guess?

raylemon Taken by raylemon with a Holga 35mm Pinhole (available in our Online Shop) loaded with Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 35mm film in Singapore, Singapore. These tags describe this photo: singapore, b&w, white, and, black, 35, 135, 135pc, holga, and pinhole. Date: 2012. This photo can also be found in the album Holga 35mm Pinhole first roll.

    A pinhole is no substitute for an ordinary camera. The power of the pinhole is in the insane Depth Of Field - it allows you to have the same crappy sharpness for objects that are for example at 10cm from the hole to infinity. You need to compose your pinhole photos in a manner that will create the most unusual result, one that can not be achieved with an ordinary camera:

    Furthermore, it needs a tripod or a solid surface to sit on.

    @raylemon Yeah, thanks for liking my pinhole photos as well. The flat film inside a film camera is a limiting factor, but I believe you can still make great photos by exploiting the pinhole's unusual features. And by using a tripod, of course.

    Another tip: Use @adash to attract my attention to your response in the comments section.
    That's what I did with a pinhole body cap and a digital camera:

    The sensor in this digital camera is small, and the image is very soft, but if that was a 35mm film camera, it would become much better, because of the larger area.
    The camera did not have a tripod in these, but was hard-pushed against the ground and that stabilized it.
