Pinhole Cameras are simple basic cameras you can make yourself.
They can be made out of pretty much anything, as seen in the slide show to the side, all you need is a container witch doesn't let light in you can achieve this by painting the container black or using black tape etc. Then you need to make a small pinhole in the box witch lets the light in. The way it works is you put film in the container and expose the light through the pinhole the light hits the paper and creates a image witch you can develop in a dark room.
My pinhole camera was made from an empty hot chocolate box witch i spray painted black. the box was quite small so my photos were quite small. approximately 3x4 inches.
With my camera i made 3 images however 2 of witch were ruined as there was a incidence in the dark room witch over exposed my images one went completely black and the other is not as bad. However my first one went really well the image is quite clear and contrasted however the parts that are meant to be white are a grey colour witch we think may be due to bad paper. Another problem i had was the finding the correct exposure time and holding camera dead still.
