Did you ever think that the oatmeal container you open every morning when you make breakfast could be turned into a camera? Or that the mint tin sitting on your desk is capable of creating stunning photos? In this eye-opening tutorial, pinhole aficionado Chris Keeney provides a history of this underappreciated art form and shows you how to make amazing photographic devices out of such household containers as a shoebox, a coffee can, a matchbox, and—every spy's favorite—a cigar box. Explaining the necessary darkroom techniques, Keeney also offers tips on what film to use, how to capture creative images, and how to make a tripod from a six-inch clamp.
