    Elementary School Pinholes

    Teaching pinhole in two elementary schools this week. Here is a selection of images the 5th grades have done using my tube cameras.

    Nice, Chris! Clearly, you're teaching them well and they're really thinking.

    How exciting.
    These kids must be thrilled.
    The pictures came out quite good.
    Thanks for teaching them to do it on film.

    Rob,

    These were done on B&W paper. F-180, 75mm focal length tube cameras http://www.pinholeblender.com/tubecamera.htm exposures varied by the day and weather and the attention span of 10 year olds but was between 9 seconds (sunny) and 2 min 30 sec (overcast/rain)
    I set up an 8x10 roller transport color processor in the classes kiln room and used B&W chemicals in it. The kids schools would not allow them to be near the chemicals. When I finish today I will have processed about 400 pinhole images. Next week I'll scan them all and print them all out on my inkjet printer.

    Fabulous images, Chris. I suspect that there are tons and tons more really good ones.
