2014 Mar 20 – June 20, Solargraphs

The final three pin-hole cameras for my solargraphy experiments were taken down late Friday, the night before summer solstice. One of the cameras (positioned upright for a landscape view) was angled too low and very little of the Sun’s path could be seen. The other two were positioned on their sides to catch sunrise and sunset each day.

When comparing the camera’s view to the processed photographic paper, you’ll notice that the view is mirrored.

All seven pin-hole cameras were reloaded with Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper and positioned in their new locations in time for sunrise on June 21st–summer solstice. I’ve adjusted their angles to include a higher arc in the sky. This set will stay up until winter solstice on December 21st. Fingers crossed!
