homemade pinhole

They say about pinhole photography ‘nothing is sharp, but everything is in focus’ and that lo-fi feel to this style of photography is what so many modern phone apps are all about. Instagram, Hipster and the rest are all about taking a clean modern digital file and making it look out of focus, blurred and smearing the colours out of true. A benefit of digital pinhole work is that you can see the results instantly instead of having to process film or paper first, you will always need more light for pinhole work than you would expect so being able too preview the image quickly and judge a change to exposure is a boon. Even at maximum ISO in daylight the exposure times are barely hand holdable
