    Smile Hello, from a novice DIY Camera Tinkerer

    Hi, I'm Nathan from Columbus, Ohio. Decided to join after spending a year or so fiddling around with making DIY cameras out of random scavenged lenses, tin cans, boxes etc, and going through a LOT of X-ray film trying to teach myself how to expose, develop, and print. I figured my learning curve had kind of hit a wall, so here I am to learn from others. Looking forward to getting to know some other photographers. Below are some of my junk camera projects and other experiments.

    Best,
    —Nathan

    Glad to see another central Ohio photographer!

    Liking your concept! I've only made simple pinhole cameras out of oatmeal boxes and wooden cigar boxes.
