Building a camera from recycled material Answered
Not sure if this goes to the right section, if not, Im terribly sorry and tell me why I'm wrong so it doesn't happen another time.
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.
