Experiment #1.18:
Custom pinhole cameras

This is a workshop for experienced and first-timers in pinhole photography. During the workshop we will be making each a pinhole camera using basic tools, such as match boxes, etc. Bring along some 35mm film and come! I have done this quite a few times, so I would find it also interesting sharing my experience and hearing from others too, to develop our skills and get some new tips.  If you have experience, it would be cool to see some older pictures you have made.

I will be providing basic materials for the workshop, but if you want to add some super custom stuff, then bring it along. I might bring a few extra film rolls with me, but grab your own too, as it might not be enough for everyone.

Update: the Soviet photo film worked, I will try to organise a dark room for Saturday in one of the back rooms. We will try to make the holes ourselves and test them out, I got some tips how to make them extra good...

Aaah sorry, I can't make it tomorrow, but it looks like a really nice workshop. If you host another pinhole workshop I can hopefully attend it in the future.

btw as soon as I have the photos developed I can send you the results :)

No worries @mactwyver! My images came out foggy as always, so I learnt some techinques how to improve that which has to do with using yoghurt foil instead of can tin and sanding down the hole etc making it extra neat. Also having the hole small enough helps...
