Since I bought the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator last year, I really enjoyed shooting with it! I already spent 4 rolls with this camera and decided to make a project out of it. This project is now officially named "Time and Place." Why the title? I will tell you all in this article all about my passion for pinholes!
As I told you all before, I was inspired by Tat’s Life Suction and his amazing work really got me, I just love his pinhole shots. Why did I decide to call my own pinhole project as “Time and Place?” Because this pinhole project is about me travelling to many places in Bandung. It could be me resting at my home, eating in a restaurant, or just hanging out with my friends and using Diana Multi Pinhole Operator I think is the perfect camera to capture these moments.
I usually put the camera away from me, to be honest I put it one meter away from me so it could capture the situation around me. Capturing the movement and it may be blurred or maybe there’s no people in it, I really embrace all that kind of possibilities, and to be fair, it’s my ideal image for my pinhole shots.
Sometimes, I took my Diana Multi Operator Pinhole outside with me to do some pinhole action, I have to practice more so I could find the right exposure time and one more thing! I MUST bring a tripod! I’m so lazy!
My favorite pinhole time is when I’m eating! Before I eat my meal in front of me, I usually put the camera in certain position and just put the down shutter of my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator.
The main highlight of “Time and Place” so far maybe is when I captured my family and I as we waited for the birth of Nadia, my baby niece.
With “Time and Place,” I really aim to capture the real situation of the image that I took so you could almost hear the sound surrounding the situation, as if you were there. Or, perhaps, feel the movement, the motion blur of people in the pinhole images. I have shot just 4 rolls with the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator and 4 albums of “Time and Place” so far, but there’s more to come, so stay tuned as my passion for pinhole grows bigger in months.
