    Pin Hole Literature?

    I am looking for some literature...with a little more indepth info on the wonder world of pinhole.
    I have read all the little bits that come with standard photo class type books.
    Looking for more specifics...Any great book/bible that I should start with?
    Thanks.

    hi mike

    check out pinholeresource.com.
    eric renner has a book that is pretty much
    the mother of all pinhole books.

    http://www.pinholeresource.com/agora...&product=Books

    at the site, they also sell laser holes, zone plates, cameras ... you name it

    good luck!

    Adding to John N's excellent advice, you might ask Eric Renner if he has back issues of the Pinhole Journal to sell you - great stuff.

    Jon Grepstad has a site with good information and many links to more information from trivial to great: http://home.online.no/~gjon/pinhole.htm

    Anaother site to keep in mind is the Worldwide Pinhole Day site: http://www.pinholeday.org/org/

    I second the Renner book on pinhole photography, available from the pinhole resource, which also includes photography with slits, multiple slits, zone plates, and I believe the new edition also covers sieves. Sieves and zone plates are a series of alternating clear/opaque concentric rings (or holes with the same concentric arrangement) that use the phase of the light wave to produce a focused lens effect. A very fine and complete book.

    A very well done book on pinhole photography with a humorous learning curve for helping understand and remember is called ' The Hole Thing' A manual of pinhole fotografy by Jim Shull. It can be found sometimes on ebay, not in print. Email me jphotojones@buckeye-express.com if you can not find it I would consider a loan.

    Jim Shull's book (either the 1st or the expanded 2nd editions) is a cute little book that should be great for teaching pinhole photography to young students.

    It's been a while since I've browsed Diane Dobson-Barton's site, Barton Studio, but she has published basic pinhole instructions.

    For a deeper understanding of the physics behind pinhole photography, I endorse Matt Young's several articles on the subject.

    Try:
    Adventures With Pinhole and Home-Made Cameras: From Tin Cans to Precision Engineering (Paperback)
    by John Evans
    I wrote a review about it at amazon.com. It's not only about pinholes, but deals extensively - though not exhaustive - with them. I found the book inspiring.
