On Saturday 3/11 we had two great students from South Fork High School present a program on Pinhole Photography at the Hobe Sound Library. If you are unfamiliar, pinhole photography is a lens-less type of photography where a light-proof object is turned into a camera. These cameras can be made from virtually anything; it just needs to be light tight. Through a small opening (aperture) light passes through the pinhole camera and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box.
Check out a couple of the pinhole cameras in the image below. One was made from a tea box and the other from a book.
In the below image, you can see how a setting in iPhone was able to invert the photo taking it from a negative to a positive.
