Today’s occasion calls for an extra awesome album, so we urge you to read on to find a short but sweet set of pinhole snaps that are mind-blowing in a number of ways!
We’re sure many of our fellow lomographers are ecstatic to shoot pinhole photos all day today for World Pinhole Photography Day, so to inspire everyone further, we bring something amazing that we found while browsing around the site for some impressive pinhole snaps.
Before anything else, allow us to first introduce the Battlefield Pinhole Camera:
Yes, friends, that’s a working homemade pinhole camera and it’s actually a really awesome one designed by Steven Monteau (who goes by the LomoHome -l-l-l-). It accommodates three (3) 35mm film rolls and exposes them simultaneously to create a split image on all three rolls.
Now, on to the even more awesome bit: the jaw-dropping pinhole snaps showing what this analogue beast can do:
Short but definitely sweet, eh? The photos above were taken using two 3-film combinations: Fuji Velvia 50, Fuji Astia 100F, and Fuji Provia 100 in the first two photos; and Rollei Retro 200 black and white film, Legacy Pro 100 black and white film, France Loisirs 200 ISO C41 color print film (boiled and soaked in n various chemicals) in the next two.
We’re sure you’re now really curious about how the camera works; watch the video below to find out how, then head over to this tutorial if this post made you want to make one for yourself!

The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.
