Iced tea cans turned into pinhole cameras. These are taped to windows or zip-tied to poles or other stable objects facing the direction(s) of the sun for months at a time. Breaks in a line can mean that the day was cloudy for a time. After those months are over, I take them back in and open the cans. They are then scanned and inverted in Photoshop. I will be documenting my progress here on this page. You can find an instructional video on how I created these can cameras here and view my process gallery here.
