Pinhole Photography + Colour

although it is interesting it would need manipulating as
you can see part of the box. I would suggest using matt paint for the inside

Looking for the right box is part of the key to this type of photography I have discovered.
It takes patience and a lot of failure to get it right as you can see. You have very little control over a cardboard box and a tin ! However I am pleased with the results for a first attempt. 

camera needs to be pointing down to stop
the circle falling too low and off the page

ditto as above

flower imagery - exposure 3200
I think this was the most successful image
I like the composition and contrasting colour and the way the
 image appears to float like a sphere
 I am going to photograph imagery on a digital screen to see what happens. I think I may lose a lot of the special qualities -  textures and colour that I am looking for.

 Like everything to do with art practice it leads to serendipity - the elements of chance kick in and this is, I feel, when the fun begins in earnest, when the magic happens for the art AND the artist.
