Solargraphy: Ultra Long Exposure Photography

Some of our second year ED students on the fine arts pathway have been doing some experiments with long exposure photography called “Solargraphy”.

The technique uses a pinhole camera loaded with photo sensitive paper. This is then secured in a location facing the path of the sun, and left en situ for a number of weeks. In this case these two fine examples had an exposure time of 12 weeks.

The results when inverted in Photoshop (photos on RHS) look stunning and show the transit of the sun very clearly along with landscape details.

Great stuff.

Pinhole Perfection


Well it`s nearly half-term here at Truro College and everyone’s been busy being creative over the past few weeks.
The photography class has spent this time learning and practicing analogue photography skills such as photograms, using the 35mm film SLR`s and these beautiful pinhole images.
Pinhole photography is a simple technique that is difficult to master. Using only ambient light and cameras made from a box with no lens, creating the images can be a bit of trial and error but when it works the results, like those above, can be awesome.
