Simplify

The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
Hans Hofman

I've always wanted to try a pinhole camera. I got my chance when a skink pinhole pancake lens for my Olympus E510 came into my hands. Here is the real first experiment. All I can say is tripod, manual setting and remote shutter release. It brings the process down to pure simplicity. It was fun though and made me slow down and really think about what I wanted to get. I'm looking forward to bringing it on shoots. Only problem, I had to clean up dust in Photoshop for the first time.

A pinhole camera - how cool is that! I'm looking forward to seeing the images that you take with it. And yes, removing dust from an image in Photoshop is a pain in the butt! But then, maybe the dust will add another element to the pinhole image.
