Sheila Bocchine

Sheila Bocchine shoot pictures with a medium format pinhole camera! No lens – light enters her wooden camera through a pinhole (hence the name) directly onto the film. Sound like fun? Make one for yourself!

    I have to say these fotos are amazing. Who would have believed these were taken on a home-made pinhole cam with no lens?!?! I know people with $2000 hi-tech digital SLRs who can’t even take fotos as good as these! It just goes to show, it isn’t the equipment; it’s the photographer!

    Love pinhole photographs. Especially if they are as good as the ones above. They have a great dreamy feel to them!
