Mel ~ (embiggenable) • µ4/3 w pinhole lens

One of the things I like most about visiting inlaws in North Jersey is the opportunity to visit with my fellow photo geezer and friend Mel Digiacomo.

This past weekend was one such opportunity. We sat and yakked, looked at my the new snapshot work and I introduced Mel to pinhole picture making. He had no idea that such a thing as a pinhole lens was a thing. I had my pinhole lens with me so he insisted we make pictures of each other with the lens. Fun stuff and I'd be very surprised of hasn't ordered one with the lens mount for his camera.

RE; oops ... in order to make the pinhole pictures in relatively dim light with the effective pinhole aperture of approximatelyf96-f128, I set the ISO to 3200 (which still necessitated a 1.5sec shutter speed).

Fast forward to yesterday. As I was sweeping the kitchen floor I encounted the need - I might say "demand" - to make a picture of the sweeping. Picked up my Oly E-P5 and made the picture totally ignoring the ISO setting. Oops. However, to my surprise the resulting picture is quite good, even without any noise reduction.
