Keep Your Pinhole Eye Open

This coming Sunday it it the World Pinhole Day! Find out all about it here.

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!
