Back from shooting in the rain and also - from Walgreens! The clerk was pretty understanding when I told her it was "experimental" and please print whatever looks like there might have been an image on it. I'm just sort of stoked that images came out! All in all, I got 22 frames from my roll of 24. Not too shabby.
Now I'll have to work on things like not getting my fingers in the shot and curb my tendency to bend down and try to look through the camera. >.>
I will be posing some of mine here soon.
Hope you had a great day shooting! That was fun - I am tweaking the camera a bit and definitely doing it again.
My matchbox pinhole is done and ready to shoot tomorrow! My only issue is that it's going to rain. That and I forgot the camera was already loaded and played with the shutter. Go me - multiple exposures of the ceiling indoors at night. >.>
I'm glad yours is getting there (and probably done by now!). I'll check back with you again. Maybe I can get some cool night photos with long exposures.
*is hoping her pinhole isn't too small*
Oh yeah, the hardest part was getting the soda tab into the take up canister. Had to use a picture hanger. That seems to be holding.
I have everything I need except for fresh film and an empty film canister, and I know I have black tape - if I can just find it. I have expired film here somewhere - that can sometimes work for a cool effect. At worst, if I have two rolls of expired film, I might sacrifice one to be the take-up spool.
Looks like I'm not going to have the plastic ring binder either - we're going aluminum.
I'm going to start making the matchbox part of it tomorrow. I wonder how re-usable the matchbox part is? I assume you can keep cutting the film out and then possibly re-use the camera if you can still slide the inner box out.
Oh, do you know what you started? Now I'm looking at all these pinhole cameras and toy cameras again. I really do love film still.
Anyway, I have decided I am definitely going for the matchbox pinhole. Are you making it 24mm x 24mm or 32mm x 24mm? I think I'm going with the larger one, only because it might be easier to get it printed around here. Square would be neat though.
Same here - I did photography in high school and loved black and white film. I'll do black and white if I can pick up a roll somewhere. I haven't looked at film in a while. I hope Walgreen's has it or I'll really be tempted to make a trip out to the camera shop. Not that it would be a bad thing - I'll just want more things if I go there.
*misses the smell of developer and fixer and yelling at people not to open the door*
My goal is to make the matchbook one. I just need to get the spent film canisters. I wonder if the Walgreen's photo places still get film drop offs? If not, I'll have to go to this one camera place that's a bit of a drive. I really want to make that one though.
Are you going black and white or color?
If I don't find the plastic ring binders lying around, then I'll probably make the clicker out of the aluminum can (read that in yet another PDF on pinhole camera making).
