Yesterday was worldwide pinhole photography day, but today is the day you start practicing pinhole photography.

I wish I would've remembered this a little sooner, but I was reminded late yesterday by photographer Corinne Schulze's blog that yesterday was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. That doesn't mean that you're off the hook, it just means that you have more inspiration in the form of the images participants shared this year. There's even one by Professor Andrew Davidhazy of the Rochester Institute of Technology. His process is a little complicated, but if you want to give pinhole photography a try, the WPPD site has some links showing how to make your own pinhole camera, as well as tips and tricks for practicing pinhole photography. It doesn't need to be very complicated and can be a lot of fun.
