Pinhole Photography

I was searching for information about a camera lens and in the search results was something about pinhole photography. Curious, I followed the link and became fascinated about being able to take photos through a tiny hole. I visited more websites and soon I was making pinholes and taking photos. Today I have several pinhole cameras; some are old cameras that I’ve converted, others I’ve built from scratch.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Worldwide Pinhole Day is not a competition – pinholers from all over the world submit a pinhole photo taken on the last Sunday of April each year. I’ve been taking part since 2005.
