Origami Photo Paper Pinhole Camera

That's a mouthful!
Origami Photo Paper Pinhole Camera!

But thanks to the wonderful wild world of the internet and online videos, I folded a pinhole camera out of photo paper.

If you are familiar with the age old art of Origami, then the rest is easy....and it really is.

I've probably folded a couple hundred cranes in my lifetime, so folding a little box using photo paper was a snap.  The hardest part was developing a wrinkly piece of photo paper in a tray.

But anyway, the video is here if you want to try it yourself.

Here's my first test shot of some trees in my backyard.

Don't forget World Pinhole Photography Day is this Sunday, April 27th.

I'll be hanging out with some friends at the Rio Grande Zoo beginning at 1 p.m. if you want to come join us!
