- To understand and demonstrate pinhole photography and how it works;
- To become familiar with darkroom processes and procedures.
The three aspects of the pinhole photography are exposure of light when taking photographs, the process of the dark room and turning negative into positive. The exposure of the light determines how the photo will look like. If the photo is exposed for a long time than it will be all white and if exposed for not enough time than it will be all dark. It also depends on the weather when we are taking the photographs. if the weather is little cloudy then more exposure time is needed. I need one of my photographs was 23 seconds which gave me good photograph. The ghosting one I did for 45 seconds total because the person had to come in between and leave. The process of darkroom is very important because we do not keep the photo in the chemical for enough time it could get bad. It is very important to have perfect time of exposure of light in the dark room when turning the negative into the positive photo.
The exciting part was definitely taking photographs because we cannot see what will the photo look like the way we see on a cell phone. We had to wait to see the photograph till they are processed through the dark room and looking at them was exciting. The pinhole was obviously a different camera and the photos worked accordingly to the exposure of light. The process of darkroom was interesting as well as I had never known about it. The most exciting part was turning negative into a positive photo and looking at it.
