Format: Hardcover
Chris Keeney, aka ck3, has always been a favourite photographer of mine. My interest in his work began with a love for the inspiring way he photographed his kids (it must have been around the time that my wife got pregnant I guess - five of six years ago - and I already envied the quality of his family album!). These photos were truly unique and he took this unique view of the world as his experiments moved from film camera tinkering to pinhole photography. It was clear from early on that he wasn't only interested in taking photos from off-the-shelf pinhole cameras but wanted to investigate the possibilities of the basic structure of the actual camera.

Pinhole Cameras is a document of this work and inside are nearly 200 pages of DIY camera goodness. It all starts, after the introductions and some photographic history, with a look into a pinhole camera's basic structure - primarily a box (and and how to choose one according to your needs and intended use) and secondly, and arguably the more important factor, is how to make an actual pinhole. (The latter can actually be purchase online but you're going to may one and not buy one, right?!) Everything you need to know is included too in a dedicated chapter. The rest of the book are full instructions for making seven pinhole cameras (nine if you count the DSLR body cap and the Holga conversion) from different objects that you may already have around the house; an oatmeal can, shoe box, coffee can, cigar box, mint tin and, my favourite, CK's version of the mighty Matchbox Pinhole. The instructions are clear and concise and include all the information that you'll need to create your own.

A well written and interesting book. It has given me knowledge and inspiration to go forward in another arm of a hobby i have pursued for a long time but had ran out of steam.
Top notch and well worth the money. I am using techniques learnt in this book to introduce the wonderful simplicity of pinhole photography to kids living in the jungle of Papua New Guinea. Nice work.

this is a great book - however alot of the cameras require access to a darkroom after a single image which is alittle off putting. All up a fun intresting simple how to book with plenty of scope to be taken further.

This book is lots of fun, great ideas- expect shopping trips though when you want to make anything in this book. Also the copper foil recommended for making pin holes with was quite hard to find as thin as is stated in the book- ended up buying some from Fred Aldous which works great although pricey. My brother steals this book from me he loves it!
