Build Your Own Camera!

Now, I have to say I don’t use film cameras so much these days, but having spent years doing so and developing and printing in some dank and smelly darkrooms over the years, the love never quite goes away.

Today I came across an intriguing website that in turn led me to another great website offering free downloadable designs to make your own stunning pinhole cameras.

And if you don’t know what a pinhole camera is or have never used one, then all the more reason to hop on over to the website in question and give it a go!

Apparently, World Pinhole Camera Day was April 27, 2008 (how did I miss that?) but on the plus side that gives us nearly a whole year to build a camera and try our hands in this fascinating area.
