From Digital Camera World:
There’s an app for just everything these days, including a plethora of photo effects that replicate traditional darkroom and camera techniques. Among these, getting the pinhole look ranks high.
However, there’s nothing quite like doing it for real, so we’re going to show you how to make a pinhole camera of your very own using your existing DSLR.
Using nothing more than a spare body cap for your camera, a small square piece of aluminium drinks can, a pin or needle (about size 7), scissors, some black electrical tape, fine sandpaper and a drill, you’ll have all you need to transform your DSLR.
The results won’t be perfect: the distance between the body cap and the sensor on most digital SLRs is fixed at an inconvenient distance for pinhole photography, and it can’t be easily changed.
If you can live with a little impressionistic lack of focus though, pinholing can be great fun.
We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!
