How To: Make a homemade pinhole camera

Make a homemade pinhole camera

Want to create your own camera? The simplest one that you can create is a pinhole camera which can be constructed from everyday household items. The items required are: a knife, a pen, a pair of scissors, a black insulation tape, a normal tape, a juice box (one that is cuboid in shape), a piece of cardboard, an empty can, an old film can, film, a pin and a paper towel. Using the box as the frame of camera, the rest of the parts are simply taped to the box by cutting various shaped holes in it. The camera film is than adjusted upon the larger sized hole. Finally the black tape is used to make sure no light enters from anywhere in such a way that it ruins the picture taken.
