A small gallery of photos shot by my very own, homemade, Lego, pinhole camera.

This camera was part of my final photography project during senior year of high school. I built it out of a random variety of Legos. Using black electrical tape, I lined the inside to avoid any light leaks. In the front of the camera I taped a small square of foil down with a pinhole poke out to serve as the lens. In the darkroom, I’d just pop off the top and slip in a piece of black and white photo paper. After that, I began a long series of trial and error.

The result were surprising and exciting! As you can see, even my professor (John Costello) had to try it out. I donated the camera and an album to the Broomfield High School photography program after graduation. A few years later I revisited the school and saw that new photography students had added their own shots to the album.

    I always wanted to build my own Lego-Lomo camera... but I need some time for that.... REALLY WELL DONE! You did a big one. My objective is to make one with film.

    I love this! Wanted to do this myself but wasn't sure what was the best way to get round the light leaks. Have to do this one night with the kids' duplo!
