Dynamic pinhole imagery

Both pinhole and zone plate photographs are made without the use of a lens. Because the exposures are relatively long, it is possible to slowly move the camera as a way to draw out the pixels. The first image below, for example, is actually a green bough from a pine tree against the water of Copperas Pond in the Adirondacks.
