Here at the Blurberati we love all types of photography and are always intrigued by the cameras used to capture the stellar images that adorn the books we see come through every day. So to give you a little inspiration for your next photography book, here’s a link to some awesome DIY pinhole cameras from Corbis. Use a heavyweight card stock to ensure a sturdy build and if you decide to publish your shots in a book, be sure to tag it with pinhole camera! In the meantime, check out some of these books by other Blurbarians featuring shots from pinhole cameras:

  1. Love the pinhole cameras. This may sound like a wacky idea, but I know there are a few organizations that help promote this event. I think it would be really cool if you sponsored this and printed some books of pictures people take on the day of the event. There’s a cool gallery down the street from you (, and I bet those folks would be into the idea, too — or could help brainstorm on an idea like that.

    Just an idea, and one that might not be a huge promotion for you, but it would be a very cool way to spread the word about Blurb.

  3. WOW!! My daughter has just made a pinhole camera (from a tin of MILO) for her yr9 photography class. It’s how the students are introduced to photography & the dark room… you’ve gotta start with the basics. It’s amazing the results that are produced!
