the next generation

Turns out that having to put in a new strip of film for every single shot gets old really fast … So we are building a new pinhole camera.

It’s base is, again, a can (from paint this time), but it will use medium format film. Roll film. No changing bag required \o/

Also, it has two holes instead of one. And it is time for the camera to get a name, I can’t keep numbering my pinholes forever. But I digress.

I think I started working on it in April, and today the camera produced a first picture:

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 01.07.07

exposure time 2 minutes, probably f/512

I’m so curious if it actually ends up working with the roll film.

Another picture I made with the pinhole camera we built. I really like how this one turned out

The middle of nowhere and strange old film


These are pictures I took with my new pinhole camera. I really really like the wide angle and how the camera distorts the image.

I noticed that people found the setup (in the picture below) to be pretty strange.

Handling a tripod with a can stuck to it seems to produce even more confusion and strange reactions around me than most things I do.

pinhole camera


*eating mandarin pieces* – “I want this can to take pictures!” – “Ok.”

Yesterday, I (we) made a new ampersand for my wall, spacer-thingies for my screen printing machine and a silly-looking pinhole camera.


This is the first picture …


… and this is the inside of the camera.
