Rollin’ bout town with a 35mm Matchbox..
I’ve had a bit of spare time lately.. and miss my little arts and craft hobby of bookbinding..
So I got a matchbox, got some gaffa tape, drank a coke, and whipped up one of these..
WTF is that (some of you) will be thinking.
Its a Pinhole camera made from a Matchbox.
If you don’t know what a Pinhole camera is, its basically a lens-less camera, where light passes through a tiny ‘pinhole’ and straight onto the recording medium; film, paper, glass etc.
I take no credit in the overall design at all, and there is also no point me explaining the construction in detail because you can just check out matchboxpinhole.com and hack your own up today.
Film: Fuji Superia X-Tra 800
Location: Budapest, Hungary. October 2010.
Photoshop: Minor Curves
PS – If you get your lab to scan the negs, you might want to try and explain what you’ve done, otherwise they’ll make a mess of them..
‘Aint no iPhone-Hipstamatic-plug in for the feeling of picking up that film from the lab!
