Pinhole Photography

I have had a make it yourself snap together pinhole camera lying around the house for a few years now. After being put off previously by various disappointing attempts with a cardboard D.I.Y. pinhole that I didn’t make very well leaking light and the frustrations of a film canister camera only taking one photo at a time, before having to unload and reload in a lightproof bag, I finally got around to snapping this pinhole camera together. This is my most successful attempt with a pinhole camera it was a bright sunny day, general 1 second or less worded as the best exposure. The photos have some camera shake and vignetting and none are sharp but that is the charm with using a pinhole. I have not toned or adjusted these photos in anyway, all have been shot on Ilford XP2 and then scanned.
