Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Did you know you could take a picture with a box, thin metal, and film?

The Center for Technology and Innovation in Binghamton celebrated Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day Sunday by turning their building into a museum and explaining the science behind photography.

"It's not as complicated as necessarily we think it is," Susan Sherwood, Director at The Center for Technology and Innovation said. "High technology always starts with a basic physical principle. In this case, optics. To get to understand that, you get a better understanding of the technology used in the world today."

Any pinhole picture taken today can be uploaded in a worldwide event.

Also on the website are instructions if you want to make a pinhole camera at home.
