Pinhole Photography Workshop this Friday, 13 December!

Learn the most hands-on, DIY, back-to-the-basics approach to photography there is: Pinhole Photography. This Friday, 13 December at 11:00 there will be a workshop on making a camera out of a shoebox. Or one of those plastic just-add-water soup packages. The picture above came out of a soup package. Really.

The workshop will last about six hours, beginning at 11:00. Participation fee is 20 euros including materials – paper, chemistry, construction supplies – but please, bring your own shoebox or soup thing. I can only buy so many shoes. After going over the basics of why this works at all (essentially, a brief history of the camera), you will be guided through building a camera yourself, from the box and basic supplies. At that point we will go into the darkroom, load our cameras, and then go out on the street and shoot. We’ll develop the pictures right away, and we should have enough time (read: daylight) to do this a couple of times. In the end, participants can take home not only their own cameras but also the photos made in them and hand-developed in the darkroom. It’ll be fun!
