Pinhole photography is photography at its most fundamental. Based on the camera obscure that came before it, the principle is essentially the same. The only real difference here is that there’s something to capture the image. In this case, the digital sensor of your mirrorless camera or DSLR.
In this video, Sean from Fotodiox walks us through making a pinhole lens. It’s a lens that pretty much any of us can make just for the cost of a can of coke – or your soda of choice. That’s because it’s made from the can itself, along with a bit of gaffer tape. It’s a pretty simple project to try.
