PINHOLES

I started with a box and finished with an image.

Pinhole cameras can be as sophisticated as an expensive DSLR where the lens has been replaced with a lenscap that has a tiny hole in it or as simple as a matchbox that’s been made light-tight.

I typically use something like a shoe box that has been painted black inside and fitted with a tiny “lens”. The lens is just a hole in a very thin metal plate made with a pin.

I use a DIY developer that is made from ingredients I found in my local supermarket. The image is developed in my DIY darkroom and finally scanned into Photoshop where I reverse the negative image and adjust for exposure.
