In Latin “camera” is a “vaulted chamber/room” + “obscura” means “dark”= “darkened chamber/room”
Having discovered photography and a love for it in the digital era has had its advantages but I didn’t go through the usual slow, sometimes frustrating but rewarding manual route of learning the art. Having reached a point where I stopped taking photos with my trusty and very loyal Sony DSC-H1, I realized that I needed to take a different route to rekindle the love for photography, and that is when I discovered pinhole cameras. Going from frustrated first experiences of building pinhole cameras and initial successes with setting up the dark room this category of posts will chronicle the misadventures of doing photography the DIY-way.
PS will also feature some interesting photography that I do with my phone.
