Considering I don't have a nice small pin handy (and it's my first go) I'm just barely OK with sharing this one. It definitely wasn't worth wasting $8 to order a new lens cap, but it will encourage me to work on building a better pinhole (and to clean off my sensor, too).

It looks utterly perfect Luke. And well done for going for it.

I didn't prepare at all, and spent a frustrating/annoying hour or so this morning making a hash of making a plateholder for my 76-year-old 6x6 plates. Gave up in the end. Loaded a 6x9 back with 70+ year old nitrate film and scrunchied it onto my Zero45, then walked 4 miles up to the woods with a tripod and shot the roll in flat overcast light. All exposures were about 20 seconds using the f/45 zoneplate.

I've unrolled the roll and rolled it back up on itself. It'll have to stay like that for a few days to get some of the curl out so that I can actually get it onto a reel to develop. It's like spring steel

Of course if I'd thought about it in advance I'd have loaded some holders with RC paper and by now they'd be dry enough to scan or make contacts ...

"he who fails to prepare must prepare to fail" hehehe

Looking forward to whatever you captured, Paul. Sounds like quite the adventure.

I went to the drugstore after breakfast and picked up some tiny pins and gave it another quick go before I need to go to work today. I kinda like this one. I'm not going to crop the vignette out of this one.....
