First long exposure
Updated: Nov 11, 2021
I feel as though my first attempt at a long exposure pinhole photograph went reasonably well. The spot I chose to place the camera was up a hill that looked out over the mouth of the estuary, and the camera was left for 4 days. I was surprised to find that the paper had acquired a pinkish, coppery colour, and that the edges looked almost burnt. Perhaps an effect from being inside a metal tin in full sun? It was also interesting to note the seemingly smooth surface of water and lack of boats in the image, however this was expected as the waves and boats would be moving too quickly for the exposure length to pick them up.
