Weekend Project – Pinhole Camera
So this weekend I have decided to try and make a pinhole camera! Basically pinhole camera’s are the most basic form of camera, with some ordinary camera film, and a little contraption that lets you be able to control a shutter to capture a photo. The photos that are made seem really cool, and all retro – and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love retro.
I got the idea for the pinhole camera from Gizmodo, who is actually having a competition for taking a photo with one of these cameras. Here is the competition: Gizmodo . They were nice enough to give us links to two different tutorials for making the camera, and it really doesn’t seem to hard. I am going to go for the not-as-nice-looking one, just because my resources are limited here in La France, and I don’t feel like trekking to a million different stores to find stuff.
Here is the camera I am going to make attempt to make.
All I need is this stuff. Not sure where I’ll find that binder thing though…
So wish me luck, and I will try and post photos here of my camera, and then copies of the pictures I take!
Here is what the pics can look like: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dippold/4536138426/in/set-72157623767533397/

I’m super pumped to do this, hopefully I don’t lame out. Ha!
