Edward Weston(1886-1958)

Page 11: Black & White Photography Masters

• French photographer

• Explored the creative potential of photography, and his uncanny ability to capture life on the run made his work synonymous with “the decisive moment”

• Also a photo-journalist who produced major bodies of photographic reportage on India and Indonesia at the time of independence, China during the revolution, the Soviet Union after Stalin’s death, the United States during the postwar boom, and Europe as its old cultures confronted modern realities.

PINHOLE Photography

Page 25: Black & White Photography Masters

WHAT IS PINHOLE PHOTOGRAPHY?

Pinhole photography is lensless photography.

A tiny hole replaces the lens.

Light passes through the hole; an image is formed in the camera

Page 26: Black & White Photography Masters

HOW IT WORKS

Page 27: Black & White Photography Masters

· We see things because light rays reflect off of them and these reflected rays form an image on the retina.

· A camera is a mechanical eye.pupil = pinholeeyelid = shutterretina = film

HOW IT WORKS

Page 28: Black & White Photography Masters

CHARACTERISTICS OF PINHOLE PHOTOGRAPHY

· Pinhole images are softer – less sharp – than pictures made with a lens. · The images have nearly infinite depth of field.· Images are exposed on film or paper – negative or positive; black and white, or color.

Page 29: Black & White Photography Masters

· Pinhole images tolerate little enlargement.

·To get clear, sharp pictures, the camera must remain very still while the shutter is open.

· Exposure time varies in length ranging from half a second to several hours.

FIRST KNOWN PINHOLE CAMERA PHOTOGRAPH

Page 31: Black & White Photography Masters

A pinhole camera is a small, light-tight can or box with a black interior and a tiny hole in the center of one end.

You can design it to accept roll or sheet film.

The two ends of the camera are parallel.

The end opposite the pinhole is flat so that the film is held in a flat plane.

The pinhole has a cover to prevent light from entering the camera when you aren't taking a picture.

Pinhole cameras may have one pinhole or several. Multiple pinhole cameras produce overlapping images or, with certain designs, panoramic images.
