‘A pinhole camera is a very simple camera with no lens and a single very small aperture. Simply explained, it is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box.’ ( So basically you only need a box with a tiny hole (0.2 – 1 mm) on it and a light sensitive paper or film to capture the image. Few days ago I made an orange, a pineapple and a melon into a pinhole cameras. I emptied them leaving just the skin and then placing a copper plate with a small pinhole (0.55 mm) on the opening. I stared with the orange. I put small piece of B/W RC paper inside and exposed it for one minute. I call it ‘Fruitography’. The reason I chose to use fruits is that I like to use ready-made shapes and spaces when I’m working with pinhole. Then I’m change things into cameras rather than making one from scratch, and most importantly; keeping the shape. Here is my first try:
