Overview

Even in the age of digital, we can have plenty of creative fun the low-tech (and low-cost) way: by building cool paper cameras and exploring the fascinating world of pinhole photography.

Justin Quinell takes photography back to its roots by demonstrating how to create attractive pinhole cameras—that actually work. Instead of a lens, these cameras have a very tiny hole that “focuses” every point of light passing through it onto paper, thus imprinting the image permanently. A CD, included with the book, contains seven templates for making the cameras; the guide provides directions and advice on shooting successful, artistic pinhole photographs in many different conditions.

Both beginning and experienced photographers will find these eye-opening!

Meet the Author

JUSTIN QUINNELL is an expert on pinhole photography, and his quirky, experimental, and dramatic photos are regularly featured in international exhibits and galleries. Often unique and humorous, his images are taken with pinhole cameras that he builds and places in unusual locations such as inside someone’s mouth looking out, or using techniques such as six-month exposures. He teaches at the university level in the United Kingdom and was a consultant on the 2009 film The Brothers Bloom, which features Rachel Weisz as a pinhole photographer.
