National Pinhole Photography Day

Detail #3 by IMRE BECSI

Yippee!! I have to admit, in all of my time as a student of photography, which started in high school, went through two university degrees, and now I teach, I have never made or used a pinhole camera. It is on my list of things to do... which is what I love so much about photography, there are so many possibilities when it comes to processes. Anyway, I want to get into pinhole photography. And since I am such a Polaroid addict, I think I will either buy a Polaroid pinhole camera or make one. When I was researching for this post, I found several very helpful and generous how-tos on making a Polaroid pinhole camera. Check them out, and if you make one, and use it, sent me some photos so I can blog about you.

A Polaroid pinhole can use Fuji instant films.
