Pinhole Cameras Part Deux

Now the student's cameras are ready to be loaded with a piece of photographic paper in the darkroom which serves as the "film." The students then take their cameras outside and remove the paper and tape covering their openings and let the light expose their paper for 2-5 minutes, depending on how bright a day it is and how large their pinhole was made. Then the students return to the darkroom, open their cameras, and develop their pinhole images. The images they get are actually negatives and are upside down and backwards, see illustration of the concept below.

The students should be posting their first images in the next few days, please give them some feedback!
