    The image on the left was created by the Sapporo pinhole camera on the right.
    I drank the beer and the kids "helped" me spray the inside of the can black. Good healthy fun for the whole family!

    Still testing it out though. Maybe I need more beer??...

      oooo hello all. Had to make a roasted chicken dinner for the fam.

      OK, here's the skinny.

      1. drink beer ;)
      2. cut open top with can opener. (save top)
      3. clean & dry
      4. spray paint interior of can with flat black spray paint
      5. drill your pinhole with a needle.
      (I started the whole with an Xacto blade and drilled the rest with a needle.
      6. Cover hole with black tape
      7. tape lid with black tape to make light proof top

      In the dark or light safe film bag

      8. load with 5x7 photo paper (you have to curl it a little to get it in the can... but it fits length wise.
      9. close lid
      10. expose film according to pinhole size & lighting condition

      develop in dektol & fixer...etc.

      11. get more beer & make more images!!

      @gillianleigh ~ maybe we should made a whole six pack?? The third PBR always taste better than the first!

      last time I involved beer with any sort of photo related activity I had a developer spill in the bathroom. A big one.

      EXCELLENT camera and photo. WOW.

      special to kagogo: you'll end up with a negative image on a 3x5 photo paper, which you can scan and reverse in PS.

      back in the days before computers you would then make a contact positive--just use the paper negative like a film one, shine light through the back of the paper onto an unexposed sheet using a proof press or a piece of glass, time by trial and error--i used the ceiling light in my bathroom as the projector.

      lazy days of summer...a few beers are good!

      chris-- the photo gets my star of approval...

      I love the way the more sophisticated instant photo technology we have the more attractive going "back to basics" becomes. This is great!

      Interesting just looking around flicker with regards to Sapporo as I am here now. Most of them are of images of food, views of the clock tower etc. So I was impressed with your original approach. Here is my fist pin hole pic
