Pinhole Camera with Kate Copeland

pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The human eye in bright light acts similarly, as do cameras using small apertures.

We were well informed about the alternative processes of printing workshop that was going to be conducted. Teacher Kate Copeland whom we met in Baroda for the same was supposed to conduct it. I was totally excited about it and was prepared with the materials on Day one.

I had my Pinhole camera ready too.. So basically we had to make a pinhole camera on our own.. Expose the image to the sunlight for some time say 1min to 4min and then the magic shows up in the darkroom.

I think using Pinhole camera is the most ancient techniques, and using it in this century is in an honor.. I think everyone should do it on their own… to know how it feels.. how it worked.
