Apr26 Fun Holiday – World Pinhole Photography Day
The last Sunday in April is celebrated worldwide as World Pinhole Photography Day.
The day aims to encourage people to pick up pinhole photography as a hobby and profession, and to share their techniques and pictures with the pinhole photography community.
Unlike its more technologically advanced counterparts, a pinhole camera has no lens and usually captures images using light that passes through a small hole or aperture. The light passes through the hole and projects an inverted image on a piece of film or paper.
