52 Cameras – Week 9 – Pinhole Nikon

April 28 was World Pinhole Day. I don’t have a dedicated pinhole camera, but last year I created a pinhole cap for my Nikons. A simple plastic body cap replaces the lens; I punched a pinhole from a Coke can, secured it with duct tape, and –Voila!– pinhole!

This year I fitted it to my FM2 and tossed it in my camera bag for the weekend. I finished off a partial roll of Ektar (at the lab now) and shot a short roll of HP5 (awaiting development now.)
