Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (Yes, This Exists)

by Katherine

This Sunday is one of the most important of the whole year. It’s a day when people worldwide gather to celebrate the magic of the earth, the wonder of human progress, et cetera. Of course I’m talking about Pinhole Day.

We’ll be posting a “how to make a pinhole camera” video in the next few weeks, but in the meantime I wanted to post a few test shots I took this week with a matchbox pinhole camera. Try it out! If your shots don’t turn out too well (as most of mine didn’t), just act like the gross overexposure, rough edges, and general blurriness were deliberate stylistic choices, and no one will be the wiser.

Happy pinholing!
