    who are all the people? it’s such a cool shot….

    I’m glad you like it. we did lots of experimental things with flashes….that didn’t work!!!! I have also spent hours photoshopping this….the larger version will shortly be available as a super dooper huge poster (and you know how much I like that!)

    it’s still really a great shot…. I thought that might have been Jo in the middle…oh and yes flashes won’t work with pinholes…oh well now you know…. but your apeture looks like it was pretty darned good…. great work…did the others get results?

  • this is my same old shortbread tin success story with paper. I have two other tin cameras that just refuse to work. Some people got really great results from film in a matchbox and there were some other “learning experiences”
    so the pinhole aperture is just too small for flash to work? what about many many flashes? that is what we were trying (and having a load of fun doing it)

    no the flash thing is merely a nice idea… even like many many mulitiple flashes just won’t work … honestly been down that road before… only time will do the trick… but having said that… you can set your pin up in your bedroom and let it expose over night while you sleep in a dark room and you’ll get a result…. :) wish I’d been there though…. oh well maybe if I come down to Melb to visit some friends sometime we can have another pinhole day… I’ll bring some of my tried and true cameras…. or do a workshop…. what ever…. but forget flash it just won’t do the trick….

  • but why why? I don’t understand!

    I don’t understand the science but the aperture is so small that you need to allow time for the light to get inside the tiny hole and find the light sensitive material… a flash no matter how powerful is only visible for like a nanosecond…. and that is not enough time for enough of the light to enter the chamber and expose the paper/film….. with most pinholes the hole is only around .25 of a mm or there abouts so the amount of light entering the apeture is tiny no matter how bright the light is for that nanosecond…. better to try the over night pinhole thingy… I’ve seen some seriously good work come out of set ups like that….

    the other interesting thing you can do with pinholes is to create an aperture plate with multipule holes in a grid or diamond or whatever shape you like and shoot with it and you will get a grid of …. or whatever that shape is…. multipule images all ever so slighly different…. that can be a lot of fun….next time try that perhaps rather than the flash…. :)

  • sounds fun!

    soxy this is wonderful! i love this shot, even with me in it!!! i have been thinking about the why’s in results with your cameras & i have come to the conclusion (right or wrong) about your varied results. & i think it! it’s the medium you are shooting on. photography ‘equipment’ has a finite life, && perhaps that is causing the issue. the age of paper etc.. but that is only my hummble opinion, & either way, i love your results.

  • yes could well be. I’ll keep experimenting and see what happens.

    This is a great pic! Would be a great album cover. Very cool.

  • yes maybe i should become a pinhole band photographer!

    So cool Soxy! – love this image! – I’m learning so much from your experiments :)

  • I still have much to learn but boy it’s fun
