Pinhole Camera made from a Book 1

Here’s an exposure from a Pinhole Camera that I made from a hollowed-out book.

    Hi Eric,

    Sorry for the delay.
    The distance from the pinhole to the back of the camera was approximately 50mm. As for the pinhole diametre – I’m not really sure. I haven’t found an effective way of measuring pinholes yet.
    I’m working on some new pinhole cameras made from books at the moment so keep checking my news updates.
