- To understand and demonstrate pinhole photography and how it works;
- To become familiar with darkroom processes and procedures.
The first aspect of pinhole photography that we learned about is taking the photo using paint cans with a small hole poked in them. While we were in the dark room we put the paper in and cover the hole. When we were out in bright light we would uncover the hole for a couple of seconds. Another aspect is developing the negatives. First, we put it in the developer, then stopped, then the fixer, and finally a water rinse. The third aspect we learned was developing our positives using the negatives. We used light to transfer the image onto a new piece of photo paper. Then we developed the new piece.
Pinhole photography was a very exciting project for me. The most exciting part for me was seeing our negatives develope for the first time. It was cool because I didn't really know what to expect. I also really liked developing our positives. I liked being able to take them into the daylight and seeing the final product of this project. This project was a lot of work but when we developed our positives we got to see that all of our work had paid off.
