Two years ago, I built some pinhole cameras. It was a great experience for me because it made me realize a few things.
1. It made me realize that a camera is really a very simple device.
2. It made me realize that you donít really need a high-price fancy electronic whiz to produce decent photographic images.
3. It made me appreciate the technological advances photography has made.
4. It made me realize that I have a personal preference for sharp images vs. the fuzzy artsy stuff.
I only wish I had experimented with pinhole cameras back during the days when I was shooting and developing a lot of black & white sheet film.
