HOMEWORK: SOOOOOUL VIBRATIONS

This week's homework, due on HALLOWEEN 10/31:

  • Make your best estimated exposures utilizing the 3 Soda Cameras you have. Remember that we hypothesized that in a well light room a 10 minute exposure would work well. Your paper ISO is 6 and your aperture is estimated to be  f 128. Go forth!
  • Read the "Soul Vibrations" chapter from Marina Warner's Phantasmagoria. Remember to underline and look up words or phrases that you do not understand. Take notes and think thoughts! Then write 1 paragraph summarizing the chapter and 1 paragraph responding to the reading. As a class we agreed to a 7 sentence minimum per each paragraph- giving your response a 14 sentence MINIMUM.

PROOF OF CONCEPT: PINHOLE SODA CAN

Alright kids, I tested our hypothesis that 10 minutes would be a decent exposure time for our soda cameras. My results are below. Looks like we are in business so be sure to complete your homework before class this Halloween: make three exposures with the pinhole cameras you took home from class last Friday.

PROOF OF CONCEPT!

Our first successful exposure with our camera obscura! A one minute exposure time with a washer as our aperture and roughly a four foot focal distance. Conditions were bright and sunny with some cloud cover.
