Lisa Kimberly’s yearlong personal photo diary. Her series is an absorbing day-by-day narrative of a developing photographer’s experiments with the medium. If you check it out on Flickr’s American Photo Creative Showcase, though, you’ll count only 350 images — the remaining 15 are private.Lisa Kimberly

Brian Krummel’s next four dreamlike pinhole photographs are shot with cameras crafted from such unlikely objects as cereal boxes, tomato juice cans, tea kettles and Altoids tins. Visit his Flickr photostream to see some of these eye-popping cameras, which are part and parcel of his art.Brian Krummel
