As part of the studies I'm doing; we've had to build our own pinhole cameras, and try putting some images on film or paper. Back to basics. I'll upload a picture of my wine case pinhole camera later on. it's a trial & error practice, with lot of comming and going into the dark room. but it's motivating to get at least out of 20 attempts, 2 results that are kind of decent .
I'm working directly on photopaper, developping, scanning and editting.
If interested in trying this out, www.mrpinhole.com is a useful tool for building you cam and for the calculations comming later in terms of exposure time, F stop etc. youtube has videos on how to make a pinhole cam from zero.
I find this an interesting approach to photography, after two years of non stop clicking and looking at the back of a DSLR, one has to really think things through; look at the available light, guess about what the composition would be, be flexible about exposure times etc... Liking it so far..
