35 mm Matchbox Pinhole Camera

35 mm Matchbox Pinhole Camera - student project

Here is my 35mm matchbox pinhole camera as constructed in the class. My matchbox was quite small, so my camera has a 10mm focal length and a calculated aperture of f90. I decided to make 24mm square photographs. Using the camera was easy, but I needed to use extra long exposure times (1–1.30 minutes) because the weather was quite gloomy (British winter).

The following photographs I took in my garden. I then processed my film and scanned the negatives using my negative scanner:
