Pinhole Photography

IMG_0836

When I signed up to take the Pinhole Photography Workshop at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), I was a bit confused when the course description said to bring your DSLR camera. Little did I know that by removing the lens from my camera I could create images using the body cap. Pinhole body caps are available for purchase, but DIY is always an option.

Instead of using my Canon EOS Rebel T3 I brought my Olympus OM-D E-M10 to the workshop.

Time to Shoot

We went outside to shoot in Grange Park using tripods.

I had to get used to not being able to focus my images. Now that I am able to use my camera for pinhole photography I will definitely go out and take some more pictures.
