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:
