Framing The World Through My Photographs

What Is Pinhole Photography?

Pinhole photography is lensless photography, in which a tiny pin hole replaces the lens.

Pinhole cameras (also know as a camera obscura) can vary in size from large to small, and can be made for many different materials, from a whole room to a sea shells. Basically a pinhole camera is a light tight box with one single pin hole,where light can pass through onto film or light sensitive photographic paper , which can be made as big or small as possible.

I have found some examples that I found from google of different types of pinhole cameras.
