Camera Obscura

Week #2 at Photography school:
Today we each made our own pinhole camera out of different types of boxes, took photos and developed them in the dark room. After each seperate exposure, with photo paper on the back wall of the camera, we returned to the darkroom and passed the photo through three different chemicals for different amounts of time and the final products were the negatives. Next week we will choose a few and make the positives of them. It was so much fun! So exciting to be in the darkroom for the first time and see how each photo came out like opening a present and finding a surprise inside.

how did they come out?

They came out relatively good! You can see pretty clearly what's in the picture. Sort of like a regular black&white film camera, just a little less out of focus...
