Pinhole and zone plate imagery

Both pinhole and zone plate photographs are made without the use of a lens. Pinhole photography is lensless photography. A tiny hole replaces the lens. Light passes through the hole, thereby creating an image. The zone plate is also a way of doing non-lens photography similar to the pinhole but more light gets to the film.
