Pinhole Passion: Mini Blender 35mm Project

2013-04-16 2

It was my first time to use my newly bought Pinhole Blender Mini 35mm. This camera looks more like a tin can container than a camera. I consider this my on-going project because I have more to learn to produce amazing pinhole shots. Perhaps you could help me.

Last week, I decided to use for the first time my first pinhole camera. Yes, I have tried the a few pinhole shots using the pinhole feature of my Diana F+ but I know that this project is going to be a different one. The manual with the camera had light measurements, the length from the subjects and how long the exposure should be. Upon reading it, I immediately told myself that this is going to be a very challenging experience. As usual, I hoped for the best.

I first took indoor shots at our house then I also tried outdoor shots in the next few days. I took note of the time, length the hole was open, the distance between the subject as well as the light available. I had a notepad with me.

And these were my shots:

I’m not quite sure if I did everything right. A few people in the community had shared their experience with pinhole blenders like this. So I would like to take this opportunity to ask for tips and suggestions for my on-going project so I would be able to have a dreamy shot for my next roll.

Oh, by the way, I found out later on that the main reason why most of my shots were overexposed was because my mother opened the can when she was looking for coins. She had mistakenly thought it was a metal coin back.

Your suggestions to better improve my pinhole shots would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

    Oh god. It's been 6 months at least, and I still haven't finished my 1st roll of Blender 120... that thing likes to move every time open/close the pinhole!! After losing all my magnetic strips, I'm plugging the holes with Blu-Tack :P
