      Great capture! The enameled metal and plastic textures are excellent.

      Actually this camera I made myself out of a small chocolate box and I made the pinhole out of a small piece of brass shim.

      There are many sites out there that go into detail on making your own pinhole cameras. There are a few sites that you can buy from but they get a little pricey.

      A pinhole camera is one of the foundational photographic tools. Camera obscuras existed long before chemical media existed to record the image.
