Time In-depth

by Moni Smith

Pinhole photography is, essentially, an in-depth study in exposure. The only thing you have control over is exposure time. A pinhole camera is simply a box with a tiny hole to let in light. It is photography in its very basic form. Since the aperture on pinhole cameras is so small it allows for very long exposures in daylight. These long exposures are what fascinates me about this type of photography. A lot can happen in the seconds that tick away while an exposure is being made.
