The world through a pinhole - The day which celebrates the art of pinhole photography is quickly approaching. Are you ready to go out and take your image?
The worldwide event is held every year and takes place on the last day of April and the organisers see it as a way to promote the "unusual beauty this historical photographic process can create."
Pinhole photography gives you the chance to take a really interesting picture by only using a simple light-tight box, which has a small hole on the side and a piece of photo-sensitive material inside it. You can buy pinhole cameras, adapt an existing one or create one from scratch.
To take part all you need is a pinhole camera, somewhere to take a photo and a computer so you can upload your images for the rest of the world to see.
The worldwide pinhole photography website wants everyone to go out, take some pictures and think about everyone else who is participating across the globe.
After the 27th of April you should get your images processed and put them up on the worldwide pinhole photography site and take the time to admire everyone else's work. Remember this isn't a contest, the day was created to celebrate the simplicity of pinhole photography not to judge who is best.
You can go out on your own or even join one of the meets that are happening across the UK to celebrate this form of photography.
