    I recently made myself a pinhole camera from foam board and an aluminum can and have been doing some experimenting. Ive had tons of fun! The best is knowing I made the entire picture from beginning to end.
    These are the four best I have done so far (three others were way underexposed)-

    (During this first exposure, I got worried that light was leaking into the camera from the back, so I adjusted a piece of tape and accidentally shifted the camera slightly.)

    (My two brothers were continuously jumping from the trampoline into the pool in this one. There are traces of "fog" over the water and a little on the trampoline if you look closely.)

    Thank you! :D
    Thats interesting...I got a completely different response from someone else. They said they got a very eerie feeling from it and expected a killer to jump out at any moment!

    I quite agree. In fact, it just may be the FIRST pinhole image that I've ever truly liked.
