April 26th is World Pinhole Day
The time has come again to go back-to-basics with photography! Every year in April, there is one special day when pinhole-heads unite to celebrate World Pinhole Day – by taking off the lenses, or creating a pinhole camera from scratch – whatever it takes to capture one pinhole photograph leaking with wide-angled dreaminess and blur. There’s quite nothing like it!
If you haven’t tried pinhole photography, now is a good time to start. We’ll keep you inspired a weekend of photographs and tips devoted to the early days of photography. Conjure that DIY (Do-It-Yourself) spirit and let’s get going!
