Captured Starlight

Pinhole photos from France! Well, my handmade custom pinholes can now be called "world famous." :o) These are the first two images captured by Daniel Gourribon, who is newly exploring pinhole photography in France. He seems to be using some sort of technical camera - I've asked for further details. Thanks for sending these, Daniel!

Why PP (Photoplane-Pinhole) ?

A small remote-controlled plane, built in polystyrene and it is propelled by an electrique brushless engine. Photo are taken with a pinhole, a camera which has no objective but a small hole.

Advantage of the pinhole:
  • weighty earning
  • simplicity
  • unusual photos

  • Long time of pose, it is necessary to use a fast film.
  • Number of limited shots, it is necessary to land to advance the film.
