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)
