One of my many summer projects (teacher) is to figure out how to use and teach pinhole photography at my school next year. As such I built a Populist pinhole camera today to see if I could make it work. I will post pics of the camera itself in a bit, but below are the four images I got today that were remotely salvageable. This was an old (not sure how old) refridgerated, roll of AGFA 200 processed down the road at Walgreens. (Doing my own developing also on the list for the summer).
The first image is my direct scan of the negative (Epson V500). The second image is a desaturation convert to B/W. The last is one or more curves manipulations in CS3 to extract as much information as possible from the negative.
The question is what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
