A PHOTO JOURNAL – HENRY CARROLL – PAGE 119

Page 119 in THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT probably isn’t one that would appeal to most people. Some people might even call it a hipster page.

Page 119 – Turn a DSLR into a Pinhole Camera

Some of you might be asking, “What is a pinhole camera?”

A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens but with a tiny aperture, a pinhole – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side.

Turning a DSLR into a pinhole camera is done by drilling a small hole into a camera cover. The idea of a pinhole camera is that everything is supposed to be in focus sorta, but it is blurred often because of the long exposure settings.

I didn’t do the best job with making my pinhole camera. My first hole was too big, so I had to make it smaller with electrical tape. I probably should have just bought one.

Here are some of my other pinhole attempts:

Personal Photo Project of the Week No. 202


Merry Christmas - 2013 - Personal Photo Project #202
Merry Christmas! – 2013

This week’s Personal Photo Project was to send take a picture to send out with my Merry Christmas text messages. Maybe next year my ambition will grow to full on Christmas card and Christmas letter parody, but it probably won’t.

If you are curious, this picture was taken in the room where we take communion following the first Candlelight Service on Christmas Eve at my church.

Next week’s Personal Photo Project will most likely involve lilies. But you never know which way the wind will blow in 2014.
