PINHOLE PHOTOGRAPHYImages from the Camera Obscura
WHAT IS IT?• The pinhole camera is essentially the camera obscura with light sensitive paper placed in the line of the hole.• Pinhole cameras can be made out of anything as long as it is a dark encolosed space with a small pinhole to allow in light. (ours are old film developing containers).
HOW DOES IT WORK? Place electrical tape over the film development container’s opening. Poke a tiny pin hole through the electrical tape to let in light.• IN THE DARKROOM: cut a piece of photo paper in half and place it shiny side up in the bottom of the pin hole camera.• Set the pin hole camera close to the subject you would like to photograph.• Remove the pinhole camera’s lid and “TAKE THE PICTURE”• The time the paper is exposed to light will vary based on how much light is in the area you want to photograph.• Outside on a sunny day= 30 seconds.• Inside or on a cloudy day= several minutes.• Put the lid back on, take the paper out in the darkroom and develop it like normal.
