    Hi
    I haven't psoted for about three months - sorry, but here is a pinhole picture I did at the start of my photography AS course. It came out beautifully, I didn't know such a clear shot could be achieved with just a small cardboard box with a hole in it.
    I know I have posted in the Critique section, but this is because I am confident people will like it. A typical English street and traffic lights, above is the negative, below the positive.

    Thanks! Its surprising how fun pinhole photography is. Very experimental, sometimes you may need to expose for a couple of minutes. But the results can be rewarding.

    'Experimental'? Not really.
    The first camera made by Fox-Talbot was a pinhole camera and they are still in use in various branches of engineering and science.
    There is a wealth of information around about them covering all the technical aspects. It is quite easy to work out the f-number and, in conjunction with the ISO speed of your chosen film, you can work out how long your exposure is. No trial and error necessary.
    I used to know a photographer that even did flash pinhole photography.
