I use various homemade wooden pinholes. Mostly in the 135 film format. I'm also n the process of making a 120 format camera. I love that this type of photography slows me down and takes me to the basics of photography.
It makes me really see what's in front of me and helps me appreciate what God has made and the art that is in nature itself.
Pinholes give out a distinct look and feel to each image and it's just an awesome feeling to see how each exposure turns out. I don't really use a light meter so I'm just basically guessing exposures based on how I see the light. I'd say several factors fueled me to shift to pinhole photography.
Photography was a ministry I did for church. It was my worship to God and I really fell in love with the art. However, as time passed, I found myself obsessed with getting the 'perfect' shot all the time that I lost track of why I was doing photography in the first place. I found myself firing the shutter on my DSLR like a madman and just focused on the technicals rather than my message.
Another factor was that one day, I was bored and I really wanted to make something. I wanted to make something that was related to photography so I decided to make a simple camera. After researching a bit, I winged a design and came up with my first ever pinhole camera. I couldn't stop making them since then and always tried to improve my design.
Photography, I believe, is for everyone. Each one of us has a story and a message to tell people. I mean, let's face it, we all look at the world differently and you may see something that most people would overlook. If you're worrying about the equipment, don't. If you can't afford your own camera, make one. Pinholes are simple and are relatively easy to make (and you can make them with most anything) and they can give you results that most expensive cameras cannot mimic.
