This is a very low tech image!

It was shot in a studio using a home made coke can pinhole camera exposing onto photographic paper. This was then developed, scanned and inverted. Cleaned up a little in photoshop then finished off in Nik Silver Efex Pro.

All part of a project to demonstrate low tech imagery, the question is does it work?

Thanks for looking and reading.

Yep, it works, and many high tech cameras, especially phones have software to emulate exactly this, pinhole and toy camera effects.

It works, but a lot of trouble to get there. A very strong interesting image. Many achieve similar quality and wish they hadn't, but it works here.

The composition and tones make this, along with the interesting subject.

Yes, it works. No, I'll not be shooting any images with a tin can myself. I don't believe in the 199% control that some digital fanatics demand - but I do like the degree of control my Contax RTS and Leica M6 give!

Having said all of that - it is an arresting image, however it was done!
