    There is an excellent book called "primitive photography", aother one with te title "experiments with pinhole and self-made caeras" or similar.

    Not only pinhole, but also other cameras can be made at home with little effort: rewarding are, for instance, hyperfocal cameras - can be done with simple lenses!

    Eggs without dichromate does not sound promising to me. Of course they dry and rot in daylight, but that is about it. Dichromate is just poor-man enough, and will give first-rate quality at prices considerably lower than normal photographic paper.

    For exposure, there is always the sun.
    And cyanotype is always pretty economical, too.

    Yes, that was what I thought when I first inadvertently stumbled upon it on the internet.

    I keep people pointing to it whenever there is a relevant topic in a thread, as, although I put it up in the Link's section, not many people seem to use that part of APUG, considering the low number of hits there...

    Well, that might be partly to blame to still present "spam" links, like the first two in the "Books" section. I contacted Sean once about that, but it seems he still hasn't found time to clean it up.

    Thanks all. Winter seems to be near the end here. World is turning more and more green each day, so I'll try the methods related to leaves first.

    The egg white thing is true. Some little bastards egged my brick wall one year. The egg wouldn't come off until I soaked it with bleach and then power washer blasted it off. Not a smart move. Had to do a little re-pointing after that.
