As some of you may know, in addition to making jewelry I am also a photographer. (My photography website is http://www.kimberlybeatty.com/ if you want to check it out)
I am trying to develop my artistic style a bit and I think I’ve found something that I’m pleased with – pinhole photography. Now, instead of going totally old school and creating one from an oatmeal canister and using photographic paper, I altered my Canon Digital Rebel by making one of the body caps into a pinhole lens (there are many tutorials on the web about this – just google “digital pinhole camera” and you’ll come up with something). It was quite simple, and I did it while waiting for my hubby to get out of the shower.
Here are some test shots with the “prototype” lens (I have one more that I plan on tweaking a bit):
