    The Wizarding World Through a Lens

    No witchcraft and wizardry can replace a good analogue camera -- Colin Creevey can testify to that! When it comes to photography, witches and wizards don't mind indulging in a little muggle technology. Arthur Weasley, however, still thinks a Lomo Oktomat is some sort of pixie prison.

    The Externsteine are a distinctive rock formation located in the Teutoburger Wald region of northwestern Germany, not far from the city of Detmold at Horn-Bad Meinberg.

    Pinhole Passion: A Project on Pinhole Photography

    A pinhole camera is a simple camera (can be made using cardboard too) without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. The basic procedure of a pinhole involves light passing through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box, that is photography in its simplest form. The human eye in bright light acts similarly, as do cameras using small apertures.
