Self Portrait #002

pinhole110418_009

Using a pinhole camera to take a portrait shot must be rather like posing for a photograph in the olden days. A long exposure is necessary so one must necessarily sit still for several seconds. Not as easy as one would imagine, and because there is inevitable involuntary movements, added to the fogginess of the pinhole effect, the result is a soft, slightly surreal image.
This was taken with a Nikon D300s, ISO 200 with a pinhole lens cap and an exposure of 15 seconds, for those of you who like to know those sort of things.
