    Here are 3 REAL Pin Hole photographs that I took today. These are NOT filters, but the real thing. I have the Micro 4/3 versions of the Skink Pin Hole from RUgift.com, Lens Baby Pinhole/Zoneplate and the Pinwide from Wanderlust. Both are great products, the Pinwide is a wider angle due to the hole being set back towards the sensor but the Skink is more robust being machined from stainless with a screw in hole that includes both the hold and a zone plate and room for a gel filter which means Infrared! As you can see, I LOVE alternative photography.

    These are from the Pinwide:




    Remember, Pin Hole photography is not supposed to be tack sharp, but sharp enough to see from 1 inch in front of the camera to infinity. You MUST use a tripod, the aperture is somewhere around f/160 and requires a long exposure. For the most interesting results you need to be almost right on top of your subject! For the closeup view of the propeller I was about 8 inches away!
