Camera ObscuraMy night in a camera was, all in all, a success! The sun came up around 7 and I shut the camera off at around 9. That’s a good 2 hour exposure. Waking up with a giant image on the wall was a very strange and very cool at the same time.

The development in Dektol also went well. I used a dilution of 1+9 from the stock solution and developed the 4×5 sheet for about 8 minutes at 20°C. The neg was rather thin and the Dektol made it very grainy as you can see. I think a full 8 hour exposure would yield a much better negative. Perhaps that will be tomorrow’s exposure…
