Pinhole Photography

 

‘Camera means ‘room’ (or ‘chamber’). The original cameras were blacked-out rooms into which light could penetrate only through a tiny aperture, which projected the resultant image on to a screen. These were called camera obscuras. A Pinhole Camera is just a smaller version with the ability to capture the image on light sensitive paper.
