Prism & Light - Photography -200

Shoot and develop a roll of film using a pinhole camera.


Pinhole photography isn't easy. You'll need to carefully load your film (or in some cases photo paper,) utilize long exposure times and use a tripod. Don't worry about getting things perfect. Have fun and show us what you produce. (The good, the bad, and the ugly... It's all good!) 

1) Obtain a pinhole camera. If you're feeling handy, build one for our DIY objective. If not, try borrowing one from a friend or renting from a photography shop. They can also be purchased from local stores or online

2) Take one or more photographs using your camera. The more photos you take, the better your chances of coming up with a great photo.

3) Develop your photo(s). 

4) Share your best photo on Instagram, Twitter, or in our Facebook Group. If posting to Instagram or Twitter, use the tags with the tags #QuestScouts and #Pinhole. (As always, using a non-private account is best so we can see what you're up to!)

Your best photo might be over exposed, under exposed, or come out perfect. Don't worry about it! This is about learning something new, not getting it perfect.
