Pinhole photography is photography in its most basic and some say most creative form. The normal camera lens is replaced by a small hole, usually about the size made by a pin, thus the name pinhole. The camera body can be any container that unexposed photo material can be mounted until exposed by light through the pinhole. A pinhole camera can be as simple as a cardboard box sealed to be light tight, withy a sheet of film on one side, a pinhole on the opposite side and a piece of black tape as a shutter to control the exposure. To date, most of the pinhole photos here were taken with a 35mm camera body with various pinholes in a homemade lens cap.
