Mike Hawley is a professional photographer and camera operator out of Vancouver, CA. This pinhole photo of Horseshoe Bend is but one example of a fine repertoire of pinhole photos that he has on his Flickr site and personal website. We’re looking forward to bringing a larger set of Mike’s work in the near future.
This photo was taken by yours truly, at Cleveland’s West Side Market, which is America’s oldest operating indoor market. I have a weird obsession with markets – I don’t know why. If you’ve never tried pinholing in a crowd though, give it a shot sometime. The funky camera and long exposures draw strangers in to talk with you about what it is you’re doing. I’ve explained pinhole photography to everyone from kindergartners to cops to retirees to homeless folks – it really gets you some interesting conversations.
Howard Moiser hand held his pinhole camera to make this shot while on his mountain bike. He was on an easy portion of singletrack near Stewarton in Ayrshire, Scotland. Howard can often be found exploring tracks first by mountain bike, and then later retracing by foot to explore further. He almost always has his pinhole camera along for these jaunts, finding his pinhole subject matter as he goes along. You can find more of his exploratory pinholes on his Flickr site
