A Pinhole Exposure Guide Neck Strap

I don't know about you, but I never seem to remember all the little things that are needed for each camera. Thankfully, my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator came with a handy little Exposure Guide, but I couldn't seem to fit it into the camera so I would always have it with me. I used Photoshop, cut and pasted a few things, and viola! A neck strap equipped with an exposure guide.

There really isn’t a whole lot to this:

I scanned the Exposure Guide, cut and paste the pictures with the words.

Then I printed out the sheet on plain paper, cut the strips out and taped them to the neck strap!

That’s it! Now you will always know how long to leave the shutter open.

Well, the taping wasn’t the easiest. I taped the strips in sections to the existing neck strap using small pieces of tape, then I used larger (packing tape) to wrap around the paper and neck strap so it was completely covered. Regular Scotch tape may work too. I recommend wrapping the neck strap using smaller sections of packing tape, about finger width. It will be much easier to wrap around.

Here is the image of what I printed out on a 8.5×11 sheet of paper.
