I am trying my hand at "handholding" rather than using a tripod. I like the "glow" effect on this one. This was shot with a different camera than my usual 6x9 professional pinhole camera. It is a "PinSpartus." I converted a 1950's snapshot camera to pinhole specifically for handheld shots which would constitute a "pinhole visual diary."

Lugging a tripod around limits the subject matter quite a bit, although I do enjoy the relative sharpness one gets with a tripod, I also like these blurry shots from the PinSpartus. There are a lot of surprises in pinholing, which is part of the attraction. Sometimes it's like Christmas, other times it's like a plate of brocolli if that is your most unfavorite vegetable.

Who'da thunk anyone would handhold a pinhole camera? Great idea and shot.

I like your handheld shots. I have 2 Spartus I enjoy working with them also. One is a homemade coke can pinhole and the other is a zone plate. I like being able to use the viewfinders. Very nice shots as always!
