I recently built a pinhole lens for my 35mm SLR. I took some photos over Christmas and I just got the film back from the developers.
The results are good, given that this “lens” is a piece of tin foil with a hole in it. The focus is pretty good, although not perfect. The bigger defect is that most of the pictures are over-exposed, because my estimations must have been wrong. I’ve managed to largely correct the exposure on the computer.
Here are my favourites from the roll. To start, we have a picture of a bare light bulb.
A view of Clifton Triangle, Bristol. This is a bit like one I’ve taken before, although that was with a normal, sensible and boring lens.
And finally a view from my bedroom window at my parents’ house in Nuneaton. There was a little snow, but sadly not enough to do anything fun with other than admire for about ten minutes. I think the yellow spot is where the sun was, and I’m putting its colour down to a developing anomaly.
