I have decided to buy a pinhole from Stenocamera and I will demount the original shutter of my Brownie camera. After that, I think everything will be ok with this pinhole camera. For this film shooting, I scanned my pinhole and measured the size with photoshop elements. It is about 4.7 mm.As the focal length of my Brownie is 10 cm, my pinhole is about f/213. This way I could determine the right exposure for my shooting. I bought John Evans’ book, which was a great help for me, although I think that sometimes some details are missing for the understanding of how pinhole cameras work.
It seems that during the shooting the pinhole moved and I don’t undertand why as it was well screwed to the camera. I also have light leaks!!!! I have a lot of work to do before it is perfect. But now I have a clearer idea of what I want to shoot with a pinhole camera and have my own pinholistic style.
Sorry for this boring post… Next time I will try to write a funnier one!
