I had been threatening to make a contact printer that was all daylight no electricity needed for some time now. It finally all came together. The first things you need to know are: a little about pinhole photography. how to deal with paper exposure. how to make some kind of back for the printer to hold standard film holders So I had to rip the lens from one of my remanufactured cameras. I decided that it was a good time to finally make the printer. I made a pinhole lens with a 1/16 inch hole. To large for a camera but I thought it might work after you get those things simi mastered your ready to go. You just take your standard film holder and insert a piece of enlarging paper into the holder. Then you insert your negative over it. I used the next size up paper but I believe you could use the same size paper and negative. That is my next test. So then you take the printer to a place with a consistant light source. I took mine along with a cup of coffee to the front porch. I pointed my light meter up and read the light. Since I have been shooting some paper negatives I knew that the ceiling of the porch is what I now call a dead light source. With a dead light source the asa/iso of the paper is 2. I had estimated just by looking that the aperture was f64. So I got a time of 2 minutes. I pulled the darkslide and left the camera sitting in a chair for the two minutes then replaced the dark slide. I loaded the paper into a daylight tank and processed it for the max time I use for paper negs. I was a little shocked to find that I had a print. There were two things wrong with it. The roof of the porch was clearly evident and the print was too light. I decided that the print was 2 stops under exposed so I redid the shot with a ten minute exposure. I added the extra 1/4 stop because I put a piece of frosted plastic over the pinhole opening. It was there to defuse the light and kill outside image. so how did it look, here see for yourself.
