Failed Outcome of Work

The piece of work that sticks out in my mind when thinking about an outcome that has failed is the pinhole camera project from field.

I created the pinhole camera in a way that I was told would work. I used a pringles container and painted the inside with black acrylic paint, this was to stop the light reflecting around the foil inside. I painted the clear lid black and put a black piece of cardboard in the lid to stop any light being able to pass through.

Then I added the pin hole in the lid and used photographic paper from the dark room.

I went outside and used the camera, exposing the paper inside for 30 seconds, then developed the paper and nothing happened. I also tried the camera inside for different amounts of exposure time but still, nothing happened. 17311447_10203091781851046_2081196522_o

The pink paper and brown marbled effect are pretty and definitely different from everybody else but not the outcome I expected or wanted. Maybe I used the wrong paper?
