Pinhole Photography - An Explanation and Guide

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: A pinhole camera is basically a very simple camera with a small hole (aperture). You can make your own pinhole camera in almost any type of enclosed space. The exposures are usually very long and the end results typically have that look of being shot through gauze. I know all this and more from reading a great post about pinhole photography on Art and Lemons. Blogger Nikki Gardner walks you through using your iPhone, DSLR or SLR camera as a pinhole camera. Tons of great information and helpful links. - Jen]
