Pinhole Cameras

This semester, I am taking my final four credit photography course in Alternative Methods. From the beginning, I have been very keen on the idea of learning new processes. Last week, we constructed pinhole cameras. Although it is more difficult to expose a photograph correctly as a beginner with the pinhole camera, I still enjoy the simplicity process.

My pinhole camera was made from a shoe box; that fact in itself is enough to interest me. In reading our text, I found that people have made pinhole cameras in airplane hangers to inside someone’s mouth. I stuck to the shoebox, though. Most of our class made them from cardboard ice cream or oatmeal containers. By using a flat box or a rounded cylinder, you create different effects in the images. In a digital DSLR camera, the lenses would be responsible for some of that alteration.

I have only exposed four images thus far. The process takes about ten minutes for each photograph. The above image is my favorite of them all. It is a shot of the doorway to the balcony on the fourth floor of Tower. The camera recorded three planes of light reflecting in through the windows. I really liked the sunspot that was created above the doorway. My professor, called it a “happy accident.” I almost prefer this image as a negative (what is shown above), because it becomes something almost abstract. With further processing, we will transfer the image from a paper negative to the positive image that will most resemble our eye’s reality.
