Pinhole Photography Tips: Diana Multi Pinhole Operator

I know I've only used the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator for just a few months, but I want to share some dead-easy simple tipster to you all Pinhole Wizards out there! Oh by the way, on this tipster I only used Diana Multi Pinhole Operator because this is my only pinhole camera. Here's my quickie tipster!

1. Use ISO 100 Film!

Yes! Use ISO 100 film! In my humble opinion and my experience, ISO 100 film is a nice film if you just start do some pinhole action. Also with ISO 100, you can open the shutter of your pinhole camera for a quite a long time especially if you are shooting indoors!

2. Use a tripod!

I think this is a note to myself too because I rarely bring my tripod, I’m too lazy, that’s why! So I think my best advice for you all and for myself is bring a tripod if you want to do some pinhole action in daylight or night time to prevent shaky and blurred photos like these ones below.

3. Ant View Pinholes!

I’m lazy to bring a tripod, so I usually just put down my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator on the ground and let the shutter open for some time. Ant View pinholes!

4. Take your pinhole camera everywhere you go and have fun with it!

If I have my pinhole camera loaded with a film, I usually bring it everywhere I go and capture my activities. When I cut my hair in the barbershop, when I’m eating in the restaurant, when I’m driving at night or in the classroom perhaps and that’s fun! You should try it with your pinhole camera! Have fun!

So there’s my quick tipster on using Diana Multi Operator Pinhole. Correct me if I have write something wrong. Pinhole! Pinhole! Pinhole!

    I never use my Diana as a pinhole but I'd like to do that more often. How long would you suggest to leave the shutter open for a good exposure?

    @miniatuurmensje for indoor I always open it about half hour until an hour or so, if I use ISO 100 film and for outdoor about 3-6 seconds, use the tripod also! I'm too lazy to bring one with me. As you can see the shots that I took above, mostly my shots are indoor :D . I think the best film to do pinhole with diana is ISO 100. Good luck! :D
