A photographic weekend-project.

I am really into photography and like with all of my hobbies, I go retro. I collect old mac, I collect vinyl records and I like to take analog pictures, be it 32 mm or polaroid (although that’s going to got harder and harder in the future). When I saw this article over at gizmodo, I instantly knew what my next weekend-project is going to be: making a pinhole camera.

A pinhole camera is a basic camera camera that anyone can make from cardboard and some tin foil. You can make more fancy ones like the ones in the article, but you can also just make a hole in a shoebox and use that as a camera. Forget aperture, focus length, with a pinhole camera, what you see is what you get. The images might look a bit fuzzy, but that’s part of it’s charm in my opinion.

I don’t know when I’ll have the time to actually do this project, but if I ever do, you’ll be the first to know.

    I have one, they’re really fun. Make sure you get the amount of light right. Either by metering the light with an external device, or have your digital cam with you and do the maths 😉
    Have fun!
