I took these pictures in the Taunton. They all have leading lines. With the first one I like how you can see the

Define Camera Obscura. Camera obscura is a dark room which makes a pinhole image.
Explain the steps to create, expose and process a pinhole camera image: You used an altoid container to make a pinhole camera. It has a dark inside. you used a pin to make the aperture. Then on the inside you surrounded it with black tape. Opposite that hole you put light sensitive paper. Then you shut and tape the surrounding of the container so no light would get in. You also covered the pinhole with a piece of tape to act as a shutter. Then you place it somewhere with sunlight and remove the tape from the pinhole. You leave it there for long periods of time. Then when its time to go see your image, you get your pinhole camera and you recover the pinhole with either another piece of tape of your finger. Then remove all the tape to open the altoid container and take out the light sensitive paper to see the negative reoriented image.
How did you create a shutter and aperture on your pinhole camera body? The shutter was the black tape and the aperture was the hole made by a tiny pin.
What was the focal length of the cameras? The focal length was 21.28mm.
Where did you place your camera and what was your exposure time? I placed my camera on the fence that surrounds the track and had it facing the school. The exposure time was 5 days.
What was the light source for the exposure? The sun was the light source for the exposure.
After taking down your camera and seeing the results, how did the image appear on the light sensitive paper? The image looked like the negative. It was a circle with a red and orange image in the opposite direction and upside down. It kind of looked like a blueprint. Explain the steps you took to "process" your pinhole negative with the scanner and Photoshop. I put the image on the scanner in the upper right corner I opened the CanoScan 5600 application. In settings I selected Scan mode: Flatbed, Kind:Color ,Colors: Millions , and Resolution: 1200 dpi. I checked off Use Custom Size and put it at Size: 2.5 x 4.5“, Rotation Angle: 0, and Auto Selection: Off. I scanned it to the desktop and named it KerrieNegative. I made it a JPEG with no image correction. Made sure the rectangle scanner bed window on computer was set in the upper left corner. I had it scanned and emailed to me. I opened up thefile in Photoshop. I went to Image>Image Rotation>Flip Horizontal Image> Adjustments>Invert. Then I used adjustments to change the color and not make it so green but rather blue.
Finally, what surprised you about your results? If you could re-do the process, what would you do differently to change your results? I was surprised that the sun would appear in my image. If I had to do it again I'd change the location of the pinhole camera. I also could fill down the hole a little more to see if it makes a difference.
I taped the pinhole to a basketball hoop facing a garden of flowers and trees. Then for the double exposed I placed it in a vase by a window facing different trees. I left the camera out from October 21 to November 2. The sun made the picture but it also rained some days. I didn't modify my camera before taking the picture. I prefer my second image over the first. It was the same camera with the same light source. It was a different location. the focal length for the first was 21.28mm and the second one was 29mm.
