Zero Image 2000 - First Light


Registered User
Thanks again to everyone on the 'On the shore line' thread. As I mentioned, I did get a Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera for my son, and we had the chance to play with it over the weekend. Neither of us had done pinhole before and so it was a bit of a learning curve. We calculated exposures using an iPhone APP and we applied the appropriate reciprocity failure factor. It was a pretty grey day. The various photoshop errors are all mine.

C&C welcome.

I like the composition but mostly I like the atmosphere. I bought a Zero Image 612 last week and tested it by placing it in an outside windowsill. your chosen location is much more apt!

Seeing your image I think that I must wander down to the local churchyard with my wooden box too!

Thanks for sharing

I think its a very good first go, nice connection between foreground and church, the texture is also good.
