Digital Pinhole Experiment

Today I dusted off my tripod and experimented with my Digital Pinhole Body Cap which is another gem from Photojojo. I wanted this gadget because I like the subtle look and feel of a pinhole image.  There are many ways to build a pinhole camera and I have made a few film cameras myself.  However, I like the idea of a digital pinhole for the immediate effect.  The concept is relatively simple. You take you pinhole body cap, fit it on your DSLR and set it to manual.  A very long shutter speed is required for indoor shots so you will need a tripod or some way to steady your camera.  I used a shutter speed of 30 seconds to capture this image.  The outdoor shot I took was around a 6 second exposure.  After that you just press the shutter and wait.  I decided to shoot these in Black & White because I think it suits the medium better.  I will be taking more of these this week!
