April 29 is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Photographers around the world are invited to take a picture with a pinhole camera on Sunday, April 29, and upload it to www.pinholeday.org in celebration of Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD).

The event is open to all photographers, hobbyists and enthusiasts of the no-lens photography technique throughout the world.

Pinhole photos are taken without any lens but simply through a small hole, about the size of the dot at the end of a sentence. Pinhole cameras are made from ordinary stuff such as shoeboxes, tin cans or tea boxes.

Interested? Visit www.pinholeday.org. For info on how to make a pinhole camera, go to this resource page.
