Well, it is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day tomorrow (a couple of hours time for me, but I will get some sleep before the fun)
I will probably use my nice wooden Zero Image pinhole camera which is already loaded with film, as well as my Holga pinhole camera and my homemade/modified Polaroid pinhole camera. Check out the official site for more details and galleries of past pinhole days and when your calendar clocks over to the 27th, start pinholing!
If you haven’t seen what I did in the last hours of this annual event last year this video is good for a giggle. If you want to make a pinhole camera at the last minute, follow the link above on my D.I.Y. Polaroid modification – it’s about making a pinhole camera from an old Polaroid camera body, to take ‘instant’ pinhole shots, but the general principles are the same for any pinhole camera, a light-tight box with a very tiny aperture and some film. The resources page at the official Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day site has some great links with more tutorials on How To Make a Pinhole Camera amongst other handy information. Have fun! Go forth and pinhole!
