     Students came out to the Craft Center  Saturday morning to participate in the second annual Pinhole Camera event. A pinhole camera is a container that has gold paper with a pinhole in it, where the light goes through the pinhole onto a film sheet. The film sheet acts like a negative in a typical film camera. The shot takes the form of the shape of the container.

    During the event, Thursday and Friday afternoon were devoted to people coming to the Center to build their cameras. The participants were asked to bring in any type of container to be used as a camera. All shapes and sizes were brought in — from a recycled tissue box, to a spam can, to a pumpkin. Saturday, students were taught how their cameras work and how to use the dark room. The winner of the challenge will win $100.
