2013 Worldwide Pinhole Camera Day is Today!

2013 Worldwide Pinhole Camera Day is Today!

Well, today is the day. Above is a photo of the camera I made last week out of an Altoids tin.

I went out to take some photos today with it and really did not have much luck. My film was pretty overexposed, so most of the detail is blown out.

Such is the magic of the pinhole camera. It is the opposite of working in digital in that the control is not within your realm. I am beginning a new project that explores this idea, and I am pretty sure I will be going back to my favored item for pinhole cameras, the oatmeal box.
