How to do Pinhole Photography and Camera Obscuras
Amongst other things in life, I teach people how to do this stuff , so here's some 'how to do it' info. Hopefully its as good as it gets.
There are some amazing pinhole cameras you can buy out there (and some not so good) but for me making your own camera is part of the fun. I've split this into different sections.
Over 30 years of experimentation.
