Quest for Fuzziness

3rd-DD Rose(1)A09A3449

Well, a word Quest might be an over statement and others may say,

it is more like my obsession.  😀

 “Concentric double Density Pinhole” 

 which I invented, is using metallic film

 for larger Pinhole though, it has a

 dreadful character to create a funny

 spark like halo around a bright spot,

 as you can see in the

 Photo here.

—– Metallic Film was used as a substitute for a Neutral Density Filter though,

the metal coating is far from even and  showing lots of hole like pattern and it may

causing that spark like halo. —– I’ve tested with a ND Filter like plastic film, but

it didn’t make a good halo.    So, while testing with numerous different materials,

I found a thin plastic film with uneven surface can make a good halo, and

I smeared it with a black soft pen  to reduce the light ( = ND Filter effect )

then,  made a pinhole on its center. (hence Double Density Pinhole)

The result was —–  a soft imaging pinhole which can produce the

almost unusable image.  😀

Still, they ARE a kind of image.

In some taste, it might not too bad. (I would say.)  🙂

Image like this, is like a painting —– and I like it.  

(The photo right was illuminated by a LED lamp =

there could be lots more interesting field of possibilities.)

    VERY much like a painting! I adore the third image of the first triptych.

      Thank you Elena. Left hand side of the picture you pointed out, there were
      funny shaped glass bottles. Strangely, those faint images were not mumbled.
      I don’t know the explanation why. 🙂
      —– Now I found the answer. = Glass bottle’s ghost (secondary image)was not
      strong enough to appear, as the core (original) image was faint. (low contrast).

  3. […] I developped 10s of devices/lenses to obtain painting like fuzzy effect […]
