Digital Pinhole Assignment

Categories: General Information,Projects No Comments

As you are photographing your Digital Pinhole assignment, please keep in mind the following things that we talked about in class:

  • Composition is VERY import in this project.  Maybe even MORE important than it ever has been
  • Frame your image well – use Line and Space to create Emphasis and clearly lead the viewer’s eyo to your Focal Point
  • Use contrast well:  Contrast will ehance the sense of Line and Space, and will also help Emphasize your Focal Point
  • Be aware (or beware?) of your exposure times – they will be long.  Make sure your camera is set down on a stable object.  Use the 2-second self-timer!  If the camera moves during the exposure, it’ll show, so make sure there aren’t any vibrations or anything that could cause a bad image.  Roadways (cars passing by) and high-wind are things that are often overlooked and can really vibrate your camera and ruin your images!
  • Review each photo after it is done.  Critically review each one and identify what you can do better for the next shot.  Look at composition, exposure (time), and contrast very specifically to help you make each photograph better than the previous one.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings:  Do not place yourself or your camera in a position that could cause you or it damage.  If your camera is sitting on an object, make sure that it cannot fall off or get caught on something.  Camera straps are neccessary, but ofiten times a camera can take a tumble because a camera strap caught on someone’s hand as they passed by.  Be MINDFUL!
  • Have fun.  Experimentation is  the key to learning.   Be aware of what you have and haven’t tried.  Don’t give up in frustration, but rather keep in mind everything that you are doing so that you can identify the techniques that work and the ones that don’t.


And, finally, here are a few examples from the students last year:
