Pinhole photography
Sep 24, 2011

I did a walk today along the Santa Monica, California beach with my Leica M9-P attached to a Skink pinhole lens. The pinhole is is a very precise .218mm in diameter, and I attached it to a 17mm extension tube to increase the focal length to 35mm (just my preference and to line up better with the Leica framing lines).

Rangefinders are ideal for pinhole photography, because the equivalent f-stop for the pinhole is f/177 and it can't be changed, so on an SLR you are kind of stuck.

Exposure time was around 2 seconds at ISO 160. I had the camera on a tripod.
