Step 7: Developing

You will need developer, fixer, water, tongs, towels, and a safe light in you dark room. It must be pitch black when safe light is off. I found out you can use orange LED halloween lights as a safe light. It is cheaper and you get more light than a small red darkroom bulb. The paper from the box will be a negative to make the positive put another piece of photo paper under the developed negative face to face. The negative must be on top. Use a piece of glass to press them together and turn the lights on for a few seconds. Make sure your extra photo paper is safe and covered or it will all develop black. Now develop the positive. It goes in the developer then water then fixer then water then air dry.

<p>I use this paper from B&amp;H photo for pinhole photography. It comes in glossy or pearl. Hope this helps! </p><p>http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/752521-REG/Ilford_1168310PROMO_Multigrade_IV_Deluxe_MGD_44M.html/mode/edu</p>
<p>Hi! I'm super new to the world of older techniques like this. I've been trying but an having a hard time finding photo paper online. It's all shiny printer paper... Can someone give me a link to the right place? Thanks:)</p>
<p>Also, What I think is the right stuff is a all MEGA expensive... Anything cheap but really functional?</p>
<p>This is a great article, but could someone please explain the use of the shutter in more depth? Thanks!</p>
<p>You put a piece of tape over the pinhole, then you lift the tape to expose the image.<br>Exposure time is determined by how long you wait to put the tape back over the hole.</p>
<p>can we use Butter Paper?</p>
<p>No, It Has To Be Photo Paper</p>
<p>This Was My Science Project.</p>
<p>....</p>
<p>I think you forgot to mention that you need to develop the first image in order to actually get your negative. Once you have your negative you can use the glass to press the two pages together to make the positive. But thanks for these steps! I am giving this as a christmas present! </p>

is photo paper the glossy paper used in printers?
No, photo paper is the light sensitive paper used by photographers to make prints from negatives. Print paper used in printers is a special type of ink jet paper and isn't light sensitive.
Am I the only one who thought this meant a tiny little spy camera? I feel so uncultured when I'm on this site.
There was a famous photographer a while back who made a pinhole camera out of a button and went around Japan photographing people. I wish I could remember his name though, his work was amazing.
Yes, but the digital camera guy is right there with you.
I was thinking the exact same thing, but this is cool, too :)
how can i download this article
it is amazing
i think u need to elaborate more on the last part. that is the hardest part and there are no pics
where would i get a brass shim from
can i use a safelight for this step? like, while loading the paper...
Using a safelight should be fine. Just don't use a bulb higher than 25 watts and be sure not to get the paper closer that 3 feet to the safelight.
Why does everthing have to be perfectly still?
