    I made a pin-hole camera from an old military ammunition can.

    I drilled a 3/32" hole in the side, and taped two 4x5 lith film sheets to the inside. I took a few shots outside just using RC paper, but most of them didn't really turn out all that great. This one was inside using a hot light. Tossed an old manequin in a chair and left it to site for about 10 minutes. About 7 minutes in I moved the light to the other side of the dummy's face, and voila! The film sheets weren't taped in perfectly, but I think it gives it a decent abstract look to it. :mrgreen:

    I scanned the print on my printer/scanner/fax and neglected to knock the dust off of it, sorry.

    That's fairly sinister and menacing!! Great result for an improv pinhole - well done!
