2010-11-01 2

We’ve got a special Tipster for you guys just in time for Halloween, courtesy of tattso! Things are going to become a lot more spooky and scary as we’re going to show you how you can capture apparitions with your trusty pinhole cameras! Scaredy cats, you’ve been warned!


Boo! Whether you believe in ghosts and the supernatural or not, you can make your own otherworldly images with your favorite pinhole cameras. Its dreamy images coupled with long exposures are the perfect combination to make your own Lomo-apparitions!


All you need is:

  • A pinhole camera
  • Some slow film
  • A tripod or something sturdy to place the camera. tattso also recommends having some Blu-Tack in your camera bag so you can stick your camera on to walls or any flat surface. This way you can take the photos from angles impossible with a tripod!

Now that you’ve got your setup in place, try to getting your friends together for a photo-op, or just go to a heavy populated place. Just go through the motions of taking a photo normally but have your subjects move, specifically their heads! For best results, try to shoot indoors to really crank up the exposure time. Once you get back the results from the lab, you’ll be pleasantly shocked with terrifyingly blurred heads and ethereal ghosts!
