Modified Agfa Clack with a 0,2 mm pinhole. My initial calculations were inaccurate and are responsible for the undesirable vignetting.

Photon sieve 1/2 s, tripod

Pinhole diameter- 0,3mm, Nikon F-90 and attachment





Some autumn landscapes -- modified 120-roll film Ami 66.






Zone plate -- 21 zones, Nikon F-90 with drilled body cap. Exposure: 1/2 s on Fuji Superia 200 with tripod.



This is my first 'photon sieve' photograph. The diameter of the sieve was simply too large. As a result, the scene is virtually unrecognizable. Behind the blur is the shed and bench of my neighbor's garden.
