Pinhole photography in the foggy Allgäu highlands

An einem nebligen Wintertag denkt man nicht unbedigt an einen Spaziergang über die Wiesen der Allgäuer Alm. Trotzdem hatten wir Spaß beim Fotografieren mit der digitalen Sony Nex und Skink Pinhole Pancake als Lochkameralinse. Sogar die neugieren Llamas machten mit und ließen sich geduldig ablichten.

On a foggy winter day, not many people would think of going out for a walk through the Allgäu highlands. Nevertheless we enjoyed taking some pinhole photos using a Sony Nex digital camera with a Skink Pinhole Pancake attached. Even the curious llamas co-operated and patiently posed for some more pictures.

Camera: Sony NEX 5
Lens: Skink Pinhole Pancake with 0.3mm pinhole

Llamas – zone sieve photo

 

 




This photo demonstrates the effect of a “moderate” zone-sieve. Two concentric rings of transparant spots around the pinhole sized main aperture render a mild zone-plate effect with enhanced highlights, while retaining a higher degree of image sharpness, similar to a pinhole photo. The cameloids here actually belong to a yet untamed herd of Pichincha llamas and alpacas in a farm located in the beautiful grasslands of the Bavarian Algäu region near Kaufbeuren. Their shy and yet curious character make them a rather challenging target for pinhole photography.

Camera: Nikon DSLR 
Lens: Skink Pinhole Pancake with zone-sieve (impressionist style)
Exposure time: about 1 second
