The more I took photography classes at USM, the more I feel in love with the medium. I would experiment constantly with new styles of photography, driving my teacher absolutely insane. This project involved a plastic pinhole camera model-kit. It took an wide angle shot the width of two 35mm frames and needed a special negative carrier.
This project played with the idea of images with more going on behind the scenes. Pinhole photographs take a long time to expose, meaning that if something moves in the frame, it will be less likely to be captured in the image. I would take this camera to various locations around Hattiesburg, MS and shoot my friends. They would run around acting silly while the images would expose. Every now and then, you can see tiny hints of their existence in the frames, but for the most part, they just look like still images.
I really enjoy this project because it plays with the idea of motion in a still image. It almost creates a dialogue about the subtext of the image, as pretentious as that sounds. This series is by far one of my favorite projects I did in any of my five photography classes at USM.
