Building a camera from recycled material
For a project I'm going to build a camera capable of taking picture (no duh) build with old materials. For my documentation process I was looking for anything that anyone already did, to inspire me and learn more about the building process.
I found a lot of guides about pinhole camera and I wish to know if the process is the same if Im going to use a len. Naturally I would say yes and I would make the hole as big as the diameter of my len, or less and maybe I was wrong thinking that.
The photography paper Im going to use is 10x13 centimeters and I would adjust the distance of the paper from the len.
Also, I would like to know if covering part of the len (let say it's 5 diameter and 4 diameter is covered) is going to do anything to the outcome. The size of the len was never discussed in my lesson.
