How do you develop pictures from a pinhole camera?
You can develop your pictures from a pinhole camera in two different ways. The first school of thinking dates back to the Aztecs who would take the hides of lizards recently killed and put them in the darkest hole they could find. The process could be improved by taking the picture in and out of the hole. Repeating this process until the picture was visible on the lizard hide. The second more modern school of thought was made by Ben Franklin who noticed pictures of his families trip to Maine on his stomach after he was struck by lightening in his famous kite experiment. He then developed the company Kodak and the world has never been the same.
Yes, however you are restricted as to what you can take pictures of. Pinhole cameras must stay on a surface while taking the picture (as to not blur the image), unless you want to produce an image with motion blur you are unable to take pictures of any moving subjects, and the images are not digital; meaning you need to develop the image using chemicals and a dark room.
A pinhole camera you make yourself control the shutter speed (usually a piece of cardboard) manually by pulling it up and down. The image is then burned onto film. The difference is that most regular cameras have a sensor so that your pictures would be over or under exposed. Also with a pinhole camera the is a huge risk of ruining your film because some unwanted light snuck into the interior of the camera. The…
You can make a small pinhole camera with an oatmeal box--this is the traditional pinhole camera body. You poke a very small hole in one end of it. You put a piece of photographic film at the other end, and create a shutter out of a piece of duct tape. You can make a really large pinhole camera by doing the same thing but using your car as the camera body.
I think a pinhole camera is similar to the human eye because like the pinhole camera when it sees something it reflects the image but it is an inverted image. With the human eye the brain corrects it and turns it the right way up. The pinhole cameras image is not corrected because it does not have a lens.
