Something fun to do on New Years Day!

Here’s something you can do – probably without leaving the house!  A few months ago I met  guy called John who takes amazing shots using a pinhole camera.  I learned how to make a camera obscurer at primary school so I understood the principle.  I did a little research into the topic and realised that half of the fun of pinhole photography is the Blue Peter aspect of making the camera.  I discovered that I could make a home made pinhole camera without even leaving the house as I had a film sitting on the shelf. 

 This link goes to plans that you can print out and make now!  I used a 35mm film, cereal packet, electricians tape, can of Stella and a encil from Bede’s World to take this arty shot.  Give it a try!
