Make a Pinhole Camera

Penobscot Marine Museum 2 Church StreetSearsport,

Take beautiful photographs with cameras you've made from boxes off the kitchen shelf. It's pure magic! The beautiful, soft-focus images will amaze you. A pinhole camera is a camera without a lens and with a single small aperture, a pinhole. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box where a piece of film or photographic paper is wedged or taped into the other end.

Photographer: Anne-Claude Cotty is an artist and teacher living in Stonington, and is a past education coordinator of the Maine Crafts Association and executive director of the Hancock County Cultural Network.
