Hey! It was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day this Sunday, April 28th. To celebrate and share our love for this tricky and fun medium we’ve gathered photos from 500px taken with pinhole cameras. Check out awesome photos that have been photographed with tins, chips containers, matchstick boxes and old cameras.
What’s Pinhole? Pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens that you can DIY in about 10 minutes. Pinhole camera can be made out of any container, which is light-proof and has a small hole in one side. Light passes through this small hole and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The image is then recorded on film or photo paper, that was placed inside the container prior to exposure.
