New toy: Pinhole

New toy: Pinhole

Treated myself to an inexpensive and potentially fun toy recently: a Holga pinhole lens (HPL-C).  Tried it out today but I suspect it will be better served for night shoots or darker areas such as dense woodland.  Gives me some ideas for the future I s’pose!

Uh-oh..?

Uh-oh..?

In the meantime, today’s test results are in and… I may have a problem with the sensor on my camera. More likely there’s some dirt somewhere – at least, that’s what I’m hoping.

Aaaaanyway… the raw images are very washed out on both RAW and JPEG files, so I’ve had to tart them up a little in Lightroom (and skillfully remove the blemishes – Photoshop’s healing brush FTW!).  I’m definitely going to be using this lens again so the next lot of images will hopefully be an improvement.
