Pin-hole Camera Photo by TGirlWTDigitalCamera Pin-hole Camera Photo by TGirlWTDigitalCamera
A pin-hole camera is made using a tin (painted black inside), blue-tack, duck-tape, a small bit of tin and light sensitive paper.

To take the picture you take the blue-tack off with the hole pointing to what you want to take a picture of then put it back on after; anything from 20seconds to 6minutes out side (depending on how cloudy it is), and 10-15 minutes indoors. All of the pictures i took were outside and took anything from 20 seconds to 4 minutes as the weather kept changing.

As the paper cant be exposed to light we had to change the paper and develop it each time in the dark room. :)

Please Ask Before Using Any Of My Photos Thank You :) Zoe Ring .

Positive Version - - This version was made by placing the original negative version face-down on light sensitive paper then exposing it for 8 seconds -

If there is something I love, is old "obsolete" stuff being taken to the extreme. Congrats.

I like the idea! Want to try it out myself someday..

One little question; why didn't you invert the colours? Personally, I think that would look even better :)

Its really worth trying and so easy if you have access to a dark room :). I did do a copy of it as a positive but it didn't seem to look as good as this one, and because this was how it original came out of the box I thought id upload this version :), when I can get hold of the positive version I shall upload it though :).

I already took the liberty to invert it (in ms paint, lol), I thought it looked better. But that's totally personal :) It's your vision, so don't take this as some kind of insult ;)

I could make a dark room.. my bathroom is completely sealed from outside light. I don't have the supplies yet though :( Let alone the knowledge and skill to develop it xD

Oh, congrats on the DD by the way! :)

Thats a good start, mmm thats only problem with dark room work is the supplies being so expensive, lucky i get to used the dark room at my college and the supplies and paper are free :). Its quite easy when you get everything set out :) either do the pin-hole camera technique or use an enlarger , expose the paper, 1min in first liquid, 30sec in next, 5mins in last and wash :). and thank you ^.^

That sounds.. quite a lot of work :P I guess that's a nice project for when I actually have more time on my hands xD

I think my uncle mentioned he had some dark room stuff lying around :) I also got a bunch of film and an analogue cam, so I could be using it more often ^^
