Thanks Alix and Mike... Now I have two more great links to add to my
Photography Resources page.
Mike, here is another example how artists come up with the same idea by
looking at art. I admire the Daugerreotypes of my anscestors.
After studying them for a considerable amount of time... I came up with the
idea to have my students print their hero on transparency and overlay over
silver. We spray painted the cardboard background - the link below has other
We did these as covers for our Heroes shadow boxes (finished size about 9 x
12). They made the frame for their "daugerreotypes" with tooling foil.
I took some pictures to show you --but the floppy was bad - I'll share later
sometime. I want to update that Heroes Lesson Plan anyways and will add

Fake Daugerreotypes

I imagine there will be another World Wide Pinhole Photography Day. - Yes April 24

Mike - I wanted this on one email for me -- thanks for posting.

If anyone is interested, this gentlemen not only takes pinhole photos, he
makes the cameras out of photographic paper. The camera is the photo.
Includes bio and summary of the process. Very cool.
