pinhole Hawaii

Cathy mentioned pinhole photography a few months ago and I thought it sounded interesting but I can't really see myself taking photos with film. So as I was poking around looking at pinhole photos I saw something about digital pinhole photography which seems much more like my kind of thing - instant gratification. :) I tried making my own pinhole but it was not working that well so I gave up and bought a commercial version.

I hadn't had time to play with it before we went on vacation so I tried it out on waves and palm trees and such. I kind of love it and I'm going to see what else it can do now that we're back home.

yeah, I'm still figuring different effects you can get with shutter speed, moving subject, etc. but I like the simplified result.

I think I spent weeks before we left making sure the garden was ready, the horse was ready, the house wasn't a wreck, and I had clothes for me and the boy to wear :) not much art-making in there, you'll notice, so I wasn't doing much blogging or blog-reading, either... but I'm hoping to do much more of both now :)

How fun are those pictures! And in Hawaii!

I look forward to seeing more photos from your pinhole camera. Have you heard of a lensbaby? Another fun toy.

thanks, Cathy! yeah, I think I saw somebody said they were using a lensbaby but I didn't really look into it...are they good? the last thing I need is more toys but it's so fun to try new things :)
