Make yourself a camera!!

The design geniuses at FWIS have created a series of Pinhole Cameras for World Pinhole Camera Day. The greatest part is that the cameras are available at Corbis as downloadable PDF’s – so you just print them off your printer, and assemble your very own, functioning, pinhole camera!!!

Did I mention they look stunning?

Take a look at the four other cameras after the jump!

Go make yourself a camera!

I found this over at the amazing Mint blog.

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    i’m all for crafts that are useful and thought to myself, maybe i’ll try this out….and then i went to the site. i don’t think i can do it. will you be making one? because really, how could you tell us to and then not make one yourself? so i’d like to see some pics of it on here soon. i’ll need some inspiration. :)

    Yeah, Jeff. Take pictures using the pinhole camera you build of a mass manufactured digital camera

    what does that even mean?

    bec, i think that first one with the explosions is the hardest one to make – i’ll take a look at the pdf’s but from what i can see this other little red guy is alot simpler

Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
