11 Mar Pinhole Photography With The Fujifilm X-T1

Source: Fujifilm Insider

Ever since taking up a camera, I’ve been fascinated with capturing images that have a timeless quality. Over the years, I’ve experimented with vintage lenses and even attached an old Kodak folding pocket camera from the early 1900s to the front of my X-T1. Unlike many other photographers, I have no interest in capturing the most pristine image possible from a scene. I’m much more drawn to a sense of abstraction in my work, exploring the unknown and letting stories unfold from a single frame. About a year ago, I decided to experiment with pinhole photography. I wasn’t interested in using traditional analog cameras because I was more intrigued by how I could adapt this style to my Fujifilm X-T1. I must be honest and say that most of the digital pinhole photographs I saw posted on the Web were uninspiring so I took it as a personal challenge to push the medium as far as I could.

The first thing I did was search the Web and found out how to create the pinhole for my camera. Turns out, it’s pretty easy. You can find a good explanation of the method here: http://m.wikihow.com/Make-a-Pinhole-Lens-for-Your-SLR-Camera (I believe he uses a lens cap but I recommend a body cap).
