I have been working on building a 5×7 pinhole camera to go along with 2 others I have built in different dimensions other than the typical square box.
The bad news is, after almost finishing it I realized that I would have issues with being able to load and unload paper into the box . As you can see it was not done very strategically which means I am back to the drawing board once again.
One thing I decided to do to make it easier was a search on eBay for some 5×7 film holders. Without a doubt, I knew that they would be expensive, but I had no idea that the ones I prefer, the plastic version, would be so difficult to find. There were buying options for singles, but sold at extremely high prices and I am not a fan of the wooden made ones. However I eventually found a seller who was selling two plastic 5×7 film holders for 98$ USD. Yes I know, but it will help me create what I want to!
The good news to all of this is that once I get it right, I will be working on my newest self-portraits solely with my own personal handmade cameras. I am on a roll and will flow to whichever direction it will take me. I still have a soft spot for photographing people but to whichever comes first, that is where my creative mind will be.
