Pincraft Photography has been awarded a Silver Star Award and joint third place in the Student Starpack 2015 competition. My design solution for Brief D: New Use For Corrugated Board is a completely recyclable and reusable pinhole camera service and product.
The user can easily assemble the pinhole camera in ten minutes, snap 12 unique black and white images on 120 film and use the camera as the packaging to return the film for developing and printing. The design is kept minimal to encourage the user to customise their Pincraft camera by adding their own artwork and accessories.
Yesterday I decided to take the bull by the horns and buy a home development kit for black and white film. My Pinhole Moments project has developed into a hobby as well as a final year university project.
After researching developing black and white film at home I spoke with a few professionals and hobbyists, as well as YouTubing the heck out of it. I thought, “yeah, I can do that” and went down to Silver Print in Elephant and Castle to look at the kits and chemicals. They were very helpful and really friendly, I can’t recommend them enough! I ended up buying the kit and chemicals and even developed my own 120 B&W film that very evening. (Results coming soon)
There is something beautiful and exciting about developing your own photos. I did feel a bit like Jesse Pinkman mixing up the chemicals but that’s all part of the fun.
That got your attention! No, I’m talking about the knob on my pinhole camera.
I designed and 3D printed the spool adapter and winder for my Pinhole Moments camera. The spool is a standard spool that you get with any 120 film. I designed the winder so there is a force fit that is strong enough to lock into position but easy enough to remove without Hulk-smashing the cardboard pinhole camera upon removal.
Summer Silhouette is an A4 size picture/poster adaptation of a birthday card I made recently.
Designed on Adobe Illustrator and laser cut for a precise and intricate finish. The contrasting coloured card is spray mounted to fix into position and I intend to mount the silhouette in a frame.
No bees were harmed during the photo shoot!
