Photon Sieve. Photon & Pinhole Sieve Photography By Guillermo Peñate Dec/16/2002 Scientists from Universität Kiel and Universität Hamburg in Germany, have developed a novel diffractive optical lens named Photon Sieve, as published in Nature 414, 184-188 (8 November 2001).

Photon Sieve

This Photon Sieve lens was developed for the focusing and imaging of soft-X rays ( ). A Zone Plate consist of a series of clear and dark concentric rings, these rings have very specific diameters, as calculated by a mathematical formula. The Zone Plate rings edge diffract light, these diffracted light interfere constructively adding up their intensity at the focal point (click here for more about Zone Plates). If a Zone Plate lens can be used for more mundane purposes as that of making photographic images, I thought that a Photon Sieve could also be used for equal purposes.

A 47mm Photon Sieve lens was made using the above mentioned technique, this lens was then mounted on the body cap of a SLR Nikon Camera. Shoebox Camera.

But what about a three year long exposure period? A German artist and also photographer, named Michael Wesely, has found out how to make photos with that long exposure. He was really interested in the urban construction projects in Berlin in 1997, so he used a self-built unique pinhole camera to capture the development. On one occasion he left the shutter open for 34 months. It sound unbelievable but these photographs are the outcome of the long-exposure shots he made.

Photography Through My Eyes

A pinhole camera is almost the same as a camera obscura, which was created in the renaissance. A camera obscura was a darkened room with a small hole in it, this hole then was able to project the outside world inside the room. It was first created to be an experience for people to sit inside it and see the world pass by, it was then used for artist to trace the image for paintings. Julie Schachter's Photo Website. Pinhole Portrait. Alyson Belcher “My work combines pinhole photography with improvisational performance, and stems from the idea that everything we experience is stored somewhere in our bodies.

Movement is one way to access and give visual form to what lies beneath the surface of the skin. The making of these photographs is an exploration of the nature of each movement and where it originates internally.” Sonia Jach Katie Cooke. Behance. 360-Degree Views. Home Gallery Bio Print Purchase.

Pinhole Photography (also known as camera obscura) is one of the simplest forms of photography. It's cheap and really easy to make your camera. ...all you need is a box with a tiny hole in it! To create your pinhole camera, all you need is a light tight container. This could be an old shoe box, Milo tin or any shape container you have lying around (different sizes and shapes will produce different effects).

Paint the interior of the container matte black and at one end of the container make a hole (approximately 1cm in diameter). Special reports. Steven Pippin's flat on a busy road in south London has bare boards and peeling plaster walls. In the corner of one room, a mattress is rolled up; otherwise, there is no furniture except two chairs, on which we sit, a workbench piled with drills and saws, and a series of Pippin's remarkable sculptural inventions. The inventions look like astronomical instruments: huge Galileo-style globes on galvanised supports that fill each room.

In the centre of one glass sphere, a television is revolving. Nancy Breslin's pinhole camera exposure tips. I am sometimes asked how I determine the exposure for my pinhole photographs, taken with my Zero Image camera. First, I use a hand-held light meter to get a reading. I then use a conversion wheel on the back of the camera to determine the time for the camera's aperture of f/138. For instance, if I get a reading of f/8 and 1/2 second, then at f/138 the time would be about two minutes (f/8 to f/138 is about 8 stops less light, and 1/2 second to 2 minutes is 8 stops more light).

Then I use a table to compensate for reciprocity failure (the fact that, beyond a second or so, film will be underexposed if you use the predicted time - the amount of underexposure depending on the type of film). After trial and error I recommend the following settings for TMax 400 film: predicted time 2s 5s 10s 15s 20s 30s 1min 2min 4min 10min actual time 4s 14s 30s 1min 80s 2m 4m 9m 20min 1hour.

I’m offering a number of handmade silver prints, made from pictures in this set, for a reduced price for the next few weeks… I’m currently studying to finish a long-paused degree, having picked it up again after a gap of twenty years.

Unfortunately, I’m a bit short of funds and so need to raise the necessaries or put the studies on hold for another year. I’m hoping to start my next course, in art history, so that I can go on and apply to study for a masters. Research: pinhole photography and long night... Creating a Pinhole Camera with 25 Pinholes Using a Shoebox. Pinhole cameras are fun! Most of the cameras are often made from the most quirky things.

The Battlefield Pinhole Camera. Miroslav Tichy - reclusive photo-vouyeur. My friend, photographer Ron Klein, having just returned from a trip along the Siberian railway with a Russian cohort, brought a cardboard camera to an IAPP meeting some years ago.

It was a well constructed piece of work intended to make fine, conventional images. Of course it is not uncommon for photographers to make their own cameras, whether they be sophisticated, special-purpose engineering marvels, converted mint tins or substantially modified extant cameras.

And then there are the various permutations of camera aesthetics that embrace all manner of imperfections from streaky plastic lenses to perpetual light leaks.
