“These Halloween images were captured using a pinhole camera made from an empty plastic mixed herb pot, scraps of aluminium foil and black electrical tape,” Heather Smith, who submitted the pictures, told Arts+Culture.
The size of the camera allowed me to take pictures from within the pumpkin as well as outside. In Through a Pumpkin, Darkly (above) I used a mirror to capture handsome Jack gazing at his reflection. As these images were taken inside using photographic paper, rather than negative film, the camera had to be left for up to an hour to expose, which produced interesting effects as the light changed.”
