    Vood- He's using a pinhole modified cam.

    Vonn- It's a fertility goddess sculpture I made out of rusted wire.

    Jack- Sunny 16 rule; the recommended exposure time for ISO 400 that came with the camera is 2 sec, so I figured: 1/400, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2 sec, that's 10 stops. So adjusting 10 stops on aperture: f/16, f/22, f/32, f/45, f/64, f/90, f/128, f/180, f/256, f/360, and f/512.

    I go with f/256 because: 1) the pinhole may be off from the manufacturer's recommendations, 2) I'd rather error on the side of overexposure than underexposure, and 3) reciprocity begins breaking down with shutter speeds longer than 1 sec, so 2 sec may not really be twice the exposure as 1 sec. This is a bigger deal when it is cloudy (6 sec exposure) or overcast (16 sec exposure). These were 16sec exposures on an overcast day and I'd say the negs are about 1/2 stop overexposed.

    If you purchase a laser made pinhole it will usually come with info that tells you the exact f/stop.
