Description
The Pinhole Camera is a practical how-to manual for making pinhole cameras and images. The techniques contained here are not difficult to master, and soon you will find yourself constructing your own cameras and making wonderful, innovative images. The content is divided into four parts, spanning fourteen comprehensive chapters. The Beginner Track, Advanced Track, and Creative Opportunities serve as an intuitive structure to the topics and techniques introduced so that both beginners and advanced artists can work at their own pace.
The Pinhole Camera
   
Part One introduces the art form of pinhole photography, discussing the benefits and opportunities.

Part Two thoroughly describes the pinhole process: from creating your own camera and pinhole, selecting a light-sensitive material, exposing your image, developing and evaluating negatives, and finally, printing your own photographs.

Part Three is the workshop section that highlights topics such as converting cameras and setting up a black and white darkroom.

Part Four illustrates the community of pinhole photographers worldwide. Each featured artist shares with you one image along with their own personal pinhole philosophy. The combination of artists and selected subject matter is a wonderful testimony to the creative images achieved with pinhole photography.
