Pinhole Photography

Excercise Category: Technical exercise

How does a light-proof box with a hole and a sheet of photo paper capture images?

During the Warring States period around 2,300 years ago, Chinese philosopher Mozi mentioned in the Mohist Canons that “Inversion arises from a small hole at the intersecting point of lights; the hole projects a long image because of the hole.”
The pinhole camera, which is derived from the concept of the camera obscura (Latin: “dark chamber”), is one of the most ancient ways to take photographs.
