We like to take a break from our technical focus during long 3-day weekends. This Monday take a break from your computer. Download a free PDF template from Corbis, and build a working 35mm pinhole camera. Perfect for sunny spring days.

Pinhole Camera: Peyote.

Pinhole Camera: Photos of Your Mother.

Pinhole Camera: Dr. Livingstone.

Pinhole Camera: World Pinhole Camera Day Camera.

Pinhole Camera: Pablo.

Pinhole Camera: Astrocam. (available soon)

Pick a design, pull out an old X-acto blade, and dust off your old paste-up skills. Follow the instructions and enjoy!
