Pinhole Camera Project

I watched this movie that talked about pinhole cameras and it perked my interest so I researched them and they're pretty awesome! So I made one.
The concept is that it's photography in it's most basic and organic form; light, film and a dark canister. Light goes in through a tiny hole in the front and burns an image on the film in the back. My pinhole camera was made from a matchbox but you can make them out of just about anything.

If you're interested here's a link that will show you how to make one like mine:
Also here's a link with some more information and more links:

Here are some pictures taken with a matchbox pinhole camera so you get the idea. (I didn't take these btw)

Now GO!
