DIY Your Own Pinhole Blender

DIY Pinhole blender how-to (step 6) by bricolage.108This is a great tutorial on how you can build your own multi shutter pinhole camera using old film canisters and a metal can. Very inventive I must say. The images taken with this sort of camera blends together different scenes in a very organic (see examples) way that many people can only achieve these days using a graphics program like Photoshop. Does anyone still remember the bad old days when trial and error was the only way to do such photographic manipulation?

  1. Hi John,

    The term Pinhole Blender is my trademark. Having my work copied is flattering because I know it must mean that I’ve produced a product that others enjoy and want. I appreciate that Bricolage and Photon Detector have included link backs to my site. Photon Detector hinted at my trademark by putting the Blender between quotes. Without a link back to me, the use of the term Pinhole Blender is an infringement on my trademark that I would like to stop. I will not be concerned if you use the term pinhole blending camera or if a link is included with my trademark Pinhole Blender.
