taken with a modified cheap point-and-shoot, which I think is the most elegant way into pinhole. You just take a scrap camera which has a sliding lens cover, remove the lens and sliding cover interlock, and replace lens with a pinhole in a piece of aluminium can (photo available if you like)

This shot is of several 4-leaf clovers I snagged out of my parents backyard. I thought I needed some luck since everything was going poorly. I liked this double exposure the best because it was so different. Exposure 63 seconds each time.

Kodak BW400CN film, 1 second exposure, partly cloudy day.
Konica Autoreflex TC camera from the 1970s.
Parts: cardboard, small piece of soda can with a literal pinhole, and electrical tape. Takes less than 15 minutes to build.
When the shutter speed is set to "B" the shutter stays open as long as the release is held. I bracketed with separate 1, 2, 4, and 8 second exposures.
Negatives scanned with a Nikon 5000 ed.

This is a shot of Philadelphia taken from Spring Garden St. looking East with the Schuylkill river in the foreground. The rig itself was built using the cardboard from the back of a legal pad, a can of Natty Light (for the pinhole), and some red electrician's tape.

The camera I used was made out of a long cardboard box it give a ultra wide field of view (it takes 5 shots on a 24 exp roll) and the pinhole was made by using a needle to drill a hole in some tin foil and then sanding down the edges to get it thin as possible. The film is wound on my inserting a key into the receiving canister and the blue tape is used to hold tension in the film.
I calculated the aperture to be around f.256 so when shooting I metered using a Fujica ST605 and worked out exposure times using a conversion chart and then doubled it to compensate for reciprocity failure.

I used the dippold tutorial to construct the camera out of cardboard, used a Dr. Pepper can for the pinhole. Tried it out around my girlfriend's backyard and got the film developed at Walgreen's

I cludged together a matchbox pinhole camera with the wrong sized matchbox (almost no one sells matches anymore!), and hung it out the car window. Composition is difficult with such a tiny box. This was about an 8 second exposure headed into the sunset at 35 mph.

I built the pin hole camera on Thursday and took all the photos on Friday. We went to a wedding so I thought it would be really cool to get shots of the wedding using the pinhole.

For this particular shot, I used the camera which is made out of a peanut can. I fashioned a film holder inside of the can using electrical tape, and the film plane is curved. This small local waterfall is rendered nearly abstract in this view. The film is Croatian Efke PL 25 sheet film developed in Diafine. Exposure was 45 seconds.

A few mountaineering friends are staying at our house and this is a shot of their tents down on our lake-front property in Wasilla, AK. I used a Canon Rebel T2i to take a picture of the pinhole camera and a HP Photosmart Plus scanner to scan the pinhole pictures. The pinhole camera was made with a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate box.

This is a picture of a rubber cat (because a real cat likely wouldn't
hold still long enough) on the top of my car's roof at sunset.
I took a jar lid and poked a small hole in it with a small pin I had
lying around. I attached it to the camera, a Nikon FM2 film SLR, with
gaffer tape and electrical tape, and then taped on a lens hood I had
lying around.

This is a picture of a pond at sunset, I tried to line up the sun with
its reflection on the water. The camera was positioned on the ground
for this shot, very close to the waters edge. I took another one like
this that came out more like a "real" photo, but I liked this one
better because it had a more unconventional aesthetic only achievable
with a pinhole camera.
