Personally, I find the HOLE idea, (excuse the pun) absolutely amazing. Pinhole is magical in that it requires no sensor, no mechanical parts and no lens. While it is possible to use a pinhole in place of a lens on a digital camera to take pinhole images, a tiny hole in a simple box with a piece of light sensitive material inside is far more impressive.
The only thing I knew at that point was that that a large size matchbox has the same height dimension as a roll of 120 film. I also realized that 120 film which does not have a cassette, would require a much more robust system to make it function in this setup.
Both Pinhole and Zone Plate produce a unique softness that transforms nicely into a digitally ‘painted’ image.
