Cat Can Pin-hole Camera

"It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness."
-Paul Strand

The Cat Can Camera (say that ten times really fast!) was obviously made out of a Kitekat cat food can. I hammered a hole in the bottom to create the pinhole and added a bit of card and black tape to seal the top, were the paper is placed. the whole inside is painted black.
All the images created from this camera are very under exposed. This is because the pinhole is to small, but I am also starting to wonder if it is also because of the cameras round shape..

The top photo had a 15 second exposure
the bottom photo had a 25 second exposure.
They have gone slightly grey cause I didn't develop them properly.

The top photo had a 1 minute and 30 second exposure, and the bottom image had a six second exposure, the pin-hole for this one was made a bit bigger.
