Photography Experiment:
Art Students Make Camera
Using materials found in
any home or schoolroom,
Alden Hanson’s seventh and
eighth grade art students at
Pensacola School constructed
their own pinhole cameras
and began to experiment with
the art and the science of
photography. The camera
bodies were made from
oatmeal or tobacco boxes; the
lens from a piece of tinfoil
pierced with a straight pin
(hence the name “pinhole”);
the shutter, a simple flap of
A paper covering the pinhole.
The boxes were covered
entirely with opaque black
paper to make them “light
tight (sealed from any leaks of
light through cracks or
seams). One end of the
“camera” was removeable
for the loading and removal of
film. The opposite end held
the lens, simply a two-inch
square of tinfoil with a
centered pinhole for the
controlled entrance of light.
Once the cameras were
completed, work began on the
making of a darkroom. A few
sheets of black paper over the
window, a few signs of
warning and identification, a
photograph safelight and as
sorted tools perfected the
metamorphasis from boiler
room to darkroom.
Film was then cut from
sheets to fit each camera and
inserted into the removeable
back opposite the pinhole.
With the shutter flap covering
the lens, each student left the
darkroom to find the right
subject to record. When the
choice was made, the cameras
were rested upon some stable
prop, the lens pointing toward
the subject. The shutter flap
was opened, the seconds
needed for exposure slowly
