Pinhole Camera Made from a Pine Nut

Transforming foods into pinhole cameras appears to be one of the popular trends. We already shared the egg pinhole camera, and now here’s the pine nut pinhole camera. Italian photography student Francesco Capponi created this tiny camera by painting the inside of the shell black, poking a hole in one side, loading it with a piece of photographic paper, and using his thumb as a shutter. He calls it the “PinHolo”, a play on words since “pinolo” is Italian for “pine nut”.

Here are a couple cocoon-shaped photographs Capponi created with the camera:

You can read the full story of how he went about creating the PinHolo over on Lomography.
