  • An X-ACTO knife

A duct-tape shutter was created in order to control the amount of time that the light was shot through the pinhole. The X-ACTO knife was used for any additional carving that needed to be done. After intensive crafting, we came out with this functional camera that we could then use to develop our photos:
