These black and white pinhole photographs were taken by Israel Gaballero and necessitated the models to pose for 10 minutes in the same position, motionless. The pinhole technique utilize long-exposure, so that enough light can get through the lensless camera's miniature pinhole aperture.

This technique can often lead to mildly blurry images as the models move ever so slightly without even realizing over the course of 10 minutes. To ease the process, the photographer put on calming music to help both the models and herself be less stressed or impatient.

The 'Veneno Dulce' or 'Sweet Poison' series features partially clothed models, their white undergarments and bodies contrasted boldly against the jet black backgrounds.
