gallery of pinhole cameras and photos

I remember my Dad developing film and printing black and white photos in the kitchen when I was a kid. It's magical to see the images appear on the blank paper. Pinhole adds even more magic. Because I make my own cameras I have control over some physical aspects of the camera, but very little control over the outcome. When I make a camera I prefer to keep the focal length fairly short. Zymo 127 and Oneiro are good examples. This creates distortions that add to the mysterious effect. The process is extremely simple. A tiny pinhole mounted on a light proof box allows a ray of light to fall on either light sensitive photo paper or film. There are details with each camera for the process involved.
