pin·hole pho·tog·ra·phy

noun

 

the art of taking photos with a rudimentary film camera composed of a light-tight container and, in lieu of a lens, a tiny hole

 

 

On the left you'll see my homemade pinhole camera constructed from animal cracker boxes, scraps of matt board, some tape, unreasonable amounts of glue, a tiny piece of a cola can, two rubber bands, and one screw. I like to shoot with Ilford Delta 100 and 400 Professional Black & White films and develop at home using Kodak D-76 Developer. 

Because of the long exposure times, pinhole photography isn’t good for capturing subjects in motion; it all becomes a blur. Still lifes, for example, are ideal. Therefore, any narrative is truly an implied narrative.
