Default Pinhole Photography

I like the concept of pinhole photography

You get some light/photo sensitive paper, but do you have to develop this paper in a dark room, or is it produced on the paper itself i.e. no need for a darkroom?

of course you need to develop it...
But you can do pinhole photography with your digital too....just put a pinhole in your body cap...better yet a medium hole in the body cap and tape a piece of foil over that and put a pin hole in the foil

As far as developing, it's not always necessary. If you're doing something like photographing the sun travelling, it will burn the paper such that you don't need to develop it, but you'll need to photograph or scan it quickly before it turns dark from being exposed when you remove it.

If it's exposed for a shorter amount of time than, say, 6 months then yeah... you'll need to develop it
