Pinhole Photography

Cyclopin: My Stereoscopic Pinhole Camera Made from a Cardboard Box

If X is good and Y is good, then X and Y combined must be even better. Out of this misguided reasoning have emerged such unholy inventions as the beer-tap hat and ice-cream fries. But sometimes, such combinations really do work – and I guess you don’t know until you try.

I’ve been obsessed with pinhole photography for a while, making my own cameras from cardboard boxes, cake-tins and the like. And last year – thanks in part to this blog – I got into stereoscopy. So I guess it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at combining the two. Enter: the homemade stereoscopic pinhole camera.

Venice into Dreams – a Pinhole Photo Essay

Many of my images or photo series are concept based, a photographic interpretation of an idea. This series – meant to be viewed in the order shown – was inspired by the way I sometimes fall asleep. I see images, at first clear and meaningful but becoming increasingly abstract up to the point of being indecipherable, then I’m gone into dreams. Do you dream in colour or in black and white?

This is my favorite so far of all the images created with the cámara galleria.

5 Sheets of Cámara Galletita Lumen Photos – By Sonny Rosenberg

The Cámara Galletita Lumen is always a bit difficult for me to explain, but it’s antecedents are, I think, a bit more straightforward.

I first heard of the Cámara Galletita in this excellent article on Casual Photophile by Sroyon Mukherjee. In essence, the Cámara Galletita is a pinhole camera with a cracker for a “lens”, a cracker camera. I was immediately intrigued with the idea of a cracker camera and the images of the very funky homemade cracker cameras presented in the article. I definitely wanted to make one, but I had other things at the time that needed attention. Still, I filed it in the back of my mind.

3D Printing For My Photography Projects – By Andrea Bevacqua

A few months ago, after a bit of thinking, I bought a 3d printer. I say, “after a bit of thinking” because I did not want to spend my free time still in front of a monitor to design stuff. But, in the end, I gave in and went for a used/cheap 3d printer in order to see if it would be interesting for me. After a few months I got bored of tweaking and adjusting the old printer and I went for a brand new one… and everything changed.
