Taking Photos Without a Camera


Seamus Doyle

The photography classes of CRHS have learned how to capture photos without even using a camera. This type of picture is called a “Photogram.” The students made these photograms by projecting light onto photo-sensitive paper.

Using the school’s dark room, they placed various objects on the photo paper and exposed it to a light projector. After developing them, the light cast on the paper produces a black and white shadow image of the objects.
