I love pinhole cameras! I usually make them out of old Pop Tart boxes, tape, and tin foil.

Here are two of the photos I've taken. They're kind of abstract looking but that's why I like them

Wow, thank you both so much

The first one is actually my sister (she's in the 2nd one, too!) standing beneath some trees. I love this type of photography because you never know exactly what you'll get!

Hahaha, Yep, it is!!! You can kind of see the shape of a face and neck looking up, and then you can see her hair, her coat, and mayyyybe one of her legs.. that's where it gets a little confusing! She has her hands in her pockets if that helps make it clearer to see

Awesome shots? I just got a few shots developed, some were pretty bad, WAY over exposed. But I couple came out golden, I'll get them out eventually. I need to fabricate a wooden one, I fell in love with a 4x5 recently that holds 4x5" Polaroid backs.

I made this damn thing for about $4. It's a 'Special Moments' camera I got at the Dollar Tree for a buck. The can of malt liquor I sliced was about $2.69. I slightly dented the aluminum with a sewing needle, then sanded the hole open with an emery board. I superglued the piece where the shutter used to be and taped a business card to the front.

These are from the fable Bonneville Salt Flats, I liked how my friend was walking back towards the camera in the last shot and it totally ghosted him. Viewed in a row it looks like a ghost that became self-conscious and disappeared.







^ Click them, they grow.

Film was Kodak 400 I believe and I counted off a second in my head.

Absolutely Amazing Fbm!!!!!! I love them!

I've never made a pinhole cam out of an actual camera.... Do you know if it would be possible to make one out of a disposable camera?

Here's another one I took for a school project.... it didn't turn out how I wanted it to but I think it captures the atmosphere that I wanted!

I wonder if it was possible to remove the lens/objective of a SLR camera (in my case a Nikon F55) and put a can with a tiny hole onto the shutter would that make any sense?

Nope, I haven't used an SLR yet. The easiest way to pull that off is to get a pinhole body cap. It's a body cover that has a pinhole drilled in it and you just put the camera on bulb and you're set.

The words on the pictures were the text on a business card I used for a shutter. The card was white and the text bled through. I liked the effect, happy mistakes are my friend.
