    Peep hole photo thread

    ... err, pinhole, I mean. I've been shooting with a pinhole body cap on my D5000 for a little variety, it's a good way to deal with cabin fever and harsh bright winter light. The pinhole aperture is f125, and I find with the dslr I can quickly home in on the right shutter speed (like 2-20 seconds) by observing the lcd display. A tripod is an asset of course but in the bright snowy woods I can handhold against a tree and get decent results. I'm using a pinhole body cap for my dx format camera that I purchased from LenoxLaser.com.

    Here are a few examples...

    A Useful Bear is a handy thing.

    Cool! I've been using a Wanderlust Pinwide on my Olympus E-PM1. I've taken quite a few riding shots, but haven't gotten anything I really like yet. Given the aperture, flare in the sun, and the different perspective, I find it challenging (in a good way). From the shots I've taken, I tend to like the ones that show off the infinite depth of field, with something in the foreground and background.

    Here are a few non-riding shots that I've been vaguely happy with...

    Still trying to capture some good pinhole riding shots. I think I need to bring a regular tripod (not a gorillapod) to get a higher perspective, which will help eliminate some of the foreground distractions...

    Here are a couple from today's ride...
