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.

Pinhole Day is Tomorrow

Pinhole Day is Tomorrow

Guess what tomorrow is? YES, It is Worldwide Pinhole Day. To celebrate the day I have created a new pinhole camera and am beginning a new project. Check back tomorrow to see what I made my new camera out. If all goes well, I will also show an image made with this camera.
