APRIL 26–WORLDWIDE PINHOLE DAY: Our Contributions for 2015

leave a comment »



Round the [w]hole world on the 26th of April pinholers were out having fun – Making their images for the 2015 WPD. Far away from the darkroom we once had we’ve once again fitted a pin-prick in a piece of aluminium fitted to a body cap of our Olympus Pen EP-5 camera.

This is the 11th year we have made pinhole images to support the WPD project! The other submissions are listed at the end of this post.

VICKY’s Submission:

Great to take this image of a moving subject – I used a digital camera with a pinhole to make this possible.

DOUG’s Submission:

I have made pinhole photos with all kinds of technology from tin cans to cars but what I like the most is how direct sunlight splashes a rainbow onto the image. It’s Autumn in Australia s the two ephemeralities – light and autumn leaves were an ideal subject for pinhole investigation.
