SLR Pinhole Photography

I finally finished a roll of film and though I’m disappointed in the results I figured I might as well post some of the shots.

All of the below were taken with my Canon A-1 film SLR loaded with Fujifilm 200 film.

I started the roll of film in October and only finished it a week ago. Most of the shots were just boring and aren’t posted. I was very excited about shooting the ones of the barn and shed, but was very disappointed to see that I hadn’t framed them well. This is one of my biggest challenges with the pinhole-SLR… to be able to use the view finder you need to have a normal lens on the camera, and the right focal distance equivalent of the pinhole, and I’m just not patient enough to frame the shot with a lens, then switch to the pinhole to shoot, then put the lens back on to frame the next shot… so I just “winged it” for these. Truth be told, I did try to use a point and shoot digital to get an idea of the framing, but you can see how well that turned out. Oh well, live and learn.

These next two are some shots I tried at night, obviously. I forgot to record the exposure length for them, but I’m guessing between 1 and 2 minutes for each.
