Pinhole Photography Class

Vaughn Wascovich is teaching a pinhole photography class during the May 2010 mini-semester at Texas A&M Commerce. It is fast, furious and fun. Included are a few of the photographs I have taken so far in this class.

A pinhole camera is basically a box with a small pinhole poked through a piece of an a thin aluminum can. Light goes through the small pinhole and focuses on a piece of coated paper or film to produce an image. This is why these images presented here are very soft focused. I must say this is much harder than I expected. This class is making me very much appreciate the pictures from the 1800's.

Rocking it with Russ

I am so appreciateive to Russ for helping me out with my class assignment using flash on the camera. It was the first time I've ever even tried to use the 580 EX flash speedlite on my Canon camera. I had all kinds of technical problems learning how to use that flash. Urgh.......... But Russ was a trooper and patient with me in the throws of learning. Here are some photos from my day with the flash light!
