Our very first photography assignment was to take photographs using a pinhole camera.  This is a basic camera made from anything resembling a small dark box (we used a paint can).  There is a small "pinhole" which allows light to seep in and capture an image on photo paper.

The pinhole camera we used resembles the one above and these are some of the photographs we were able to take while using it:

The simplicity of them is what I am in love with.  The top photo was made into a positive while the bottom remains a negative print.  Who would have thought you can do this with a paint can?  It is so cool!
