Hey all..

My photo class is getting ready for World Pinhole Day and the idea was to do something from scratch using found materials and such...

I'm using a standard size copy paper box with a hole I poked my self with a pin.

I forget the actual size but our teacher mentioned its a pretty standard size needle for pinholes.

Its all sanded down and ready to go.

Here are my questions.

I'm going to be using Arista or Ilford RC for my exposures. I have some comps in mind already...

I'm thinking 4-5pm landscapes to try and grab those awesome shadows...

Do you think I'm looking 5-10 minutes in that kind of daylight?


If I wanted to leave a similar box in the middle of a field for like 6 hours do you think I could catch star trails at night?
