Taken with a simple homemade oatmeal box pinhole camera.
nice. pinhole at its simplest and best. How nice to have cooperative models too.
Come back with more.
Very interesting. I've always wanted to make a pinhole camera but have never done it. This inspires me to look into it a little more closely.
Both fun, but you have a real winner in the top image - love how the camera's angle gave it the giant lip-shape. :thumbup:
Very well done. Reminds me I need to build another 35mm matchbox pinhole and get back out there for some more lensless fun.
Cool pinhole photo: What did you actually use for the "pinhole." That is, what kind of material is the pinhole in?
Thank you all
I actually used a thin piece of metal, sorry I'm not sure exactly what it was...
Then I poked a hole in it with a thumbtack and attached it to the oatmeal box with black tape.
Your method worked! My pinholes are all in thin metal. But they were supplied by a firm that specializes in the precise size for the focal length.
Once I made a cardboard box pinhole camera with a tiny whole punched in the cardboard. I got a really funky round and ragged image -- something akin to the "birth of photography."
Could you do something like with a body cap for a digital camera?
The pinhole camera <3. Making one is the first photo assiment at my school.
Yup. That's actually a very common method for doing it with an SLR, film or digital. In fact I was going to go look for some K-Mount body caps tonight to try it.
I just love these pinhole shots. Look at how wide, vignetted and distorted the images are! It's so surreal. I love it!
Very interesting pinhole shots, i'm really into pinholes myself and have made several cameras, i will post some of my works up now x
