The Bookish Camera

What a find! As I was making my daily rounds around the interwebs this morning, I just happened to luck upon the site of Erin Paysse, a trained architect who spends most of her time making pinhole cameras (like the one above, made out of an old book) and custom woodworking pieces. Nice, nice, beautiful stuff! Check her out.

  1. THese are awesome, I dont understand using 35mm film though? I am familiar with using photo paper as the medium for capturing the image but I dont get how she is getting the film to work? Is it the same concept?

  2. Gene - Best asked to the more camera oriented among my readers. I thought the project was cool, but know next to nothing about how it works. Sorry! Anybody know the answer?

  3. Thanks for the post. This was one of two posts I saw in the span of a week that got me interested in pinhole photography. Now I've converted my Nikon D40 into a digital pinhole camera, and have been happy ever since. It's amazing what a pinhole can do; plus what creative people come up with as far as camera body designs.
