No Lens, No Problem — on Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day
Posted By Scott Baradell On February 8, 2007 @ 5:06 am In Art of Photography | No Comments
Say what you will about pinhole photography — but it’s hard to argue with its staying power. As we approach Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day  on April 29, 2007, we prepare to celebrate a form of lens-less image-making that has been around since the time of Aristotle .
What, exactly, is Pinhole Day?
Anyone, anywhere in the world, who makes a pinhole photograph on the last Sunday in April, can scan it and upload it to this website  where it will become part of the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day celebration’s online gallery.
Writes Peter Marshall at About.com :
Pinhole cameras were known long before photography, and still have a certain interest, not least because of the sharpness in depth they provide. A pinhole doesn’t focus an image, so objects at different distances are more or less equally sharp … If you have a camera – film or digital – which takes interchangeable lenses, taking pinhole images could not be more simple.
Even if you don’t have a camera with interchangeable lenses, it’s easy to make a pinhole camera — so be sure to join in the fun.
