Goin’ Gothic

I created a new pinhole camera out of an empty tin that contained hand cream.  It has a very wide angle of capture with a focal length of only 1-inch, and an f-stop of 120.  I placed it on a mini-tripod, set it on the ground, and let it rip in the low altitude fall sunshine.  Still, it’s easy to get overexposed, even in just 10 seconds.

I like to see this first image as me going gothic.  It has a creepy feel to it.  I have to pre-cut the photo paper to fit into the camera, and it is hard to get out.  I scratched it up a bit trying.

Just a ghost image of me in this one.  I didn’t get in front of it long enough.
