A picture is worth a thousand words, but it is worth a thousand hours of putting together one of Wooodsum's DIY Pinhole Cameras? OK, maybe a thousand is a bit of an exaggeration. The kit actually specifies 2 to 4 hours of "continuous work" to pop all 79 pieces of laser-cut wood out of their cards, and puzzle them together into the fully functional analog camera you see here.
If you're not familiar with pinhole cameras, they're retro photo shooters that take pictures through an itty bitty pinhole instead of a lens. You as photographer also control the camera's exposure time. Resultant photographs have a "vintage" feel. That means they're blurry.
Once assembled, you'll need to insert a roll of 35mm film into your Woodsum Pinhole Camera to take your photos. Then you'll need to learn how to develop film, or find the one pharmacy in rural Iowa that still does it, so you can look at them.
