Pinhole Cameras

During our first week we were given a workshop where we were able to create our own pinhole cameras using a can. In the workshop we were taught how to make the camera using the can, some paper and tape. I found this to be fairly simple and encountered no issues when producing my camera.

We were then taken to the dark room where we were instructed about the use of film, and how light can affect it’s development later in the process.

When we had inserted the film into the can, we were able to leave the darkroom and take a photograph; leaving the film to be exposed for no longer than 8 seconds to get the best results.

Afterwards we placed the film in the development chemicals, and were able to see what we had captured. After this process, the film was photographed and and inverted to show the cameras proper effect.
