If you've never thought of taking photos of beautiful flowers with a pinhole camera, the awesome album you'll find after the jump will finally make you want to try it out!
While the humble pinhole camera is the simplest and most basic tool you can use to take photos, it’s actually capable of taking interesting images of almost anything. We usually use pinhole cameras for taking dreamy landscapes and ghostly long exposures, but they’re also quite nice for taking close-ups, as we can see in the awesome flower photos below taken by maria_vlachou using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator! Many of our fellow lomographers have actually tried taking flower snaps their pinhole cameras with beautiful results, so if you’ve never tried it yet, tomorrow may be a good time, in observance of World Pinhole Photography Day!
