The Book You Need To Succeed

When visiting the library last week I came across a trolly with some ‘free to good home’ books on it.  They were mostly titles on design and relevant software.  One was an old copy of the Photoshop CS3 Bible.  Its a fat old book, and I had the idea that it would be quite ironic to turn it into a pinhole camera…

…so I took it home, and thats what I did. 🙂

A few hours and some assistance spent hollowing out the centre created a ‘box’, and a pinhole secured into the front cover and hey, its a camera.  PVA glue holds all of the pages together and returns some sort of rigidity to its structure.  The inside was painted and gaffe taped to make sure its as light tight as it can be.

A couple of thumb tacks hold a piece of 5×7 photographic paper in the right place, and allows me to guide the paper in (hopefully) in the dark.  I know that the paper is safe under red light but I haven’t got a fully fledged darkroom right now, so a dark bag will have to do.

I’ll post again when I have some results to show…
