Pinhole Polaroid Photography

Sarah & Sarah 01 - Sepia Polaroid Pinhole

For the past couple of months I have been exploring the wonderful world of Pinhole photography.

Using the Polaroid Pinhole 100 camera and the rare and almost out-of-stock Sepia polaroid film, I’ve come to really appreciate the limitations (and happy accidents) that come with pinhole photography.

In case some of you don’t know and are in need of an explanation; a pinhole camera is basically just a box with a tiny little pin hole poked in it, literally! No lens, no shutter, nothing but a hole in a box. This is as basic as photography gets, but with beautiful and occasionally unpredictable results.

You can see more of these pinhole explorations in my Pinhole Flickr Set.


Holgaroid + Type 100 Sepia Film

     


Wall Of Chairs – Type 100 Sepia

Yay! My Holgaroid (Holga 120GFN + Polaroid back) arrived from PolaPremium.com along with a few packs of film.

This is my third Holga camera but the first with a glass lens, a flash and a Polaroid back. And this particular one seems to have much crazier light leaks than my previous models, but it only adds to the mystique of the images, imho.

My first tests with this Holgaroid were conducted using the Type 100 Sepia Polaroid film, so the Sepia-toned image you see here is how the camera shot it (no post processing, no Photoshop!)

I seem to be de-evolving my photographic process; from Digital, to Holga 120 Film, to Holga-based Polaroids… what could possibly be next? (hint: Pinhole Photography!)
