An analogue journey in the digital era!
There's nothing more magical than capturing your very own images without the aid of a camera. In a world that is rapidly moving away from traditional photography techniques, we will take a step back and look at the world through a pinhole. Our environment is full of digitally manipulated imagery and yet the most amazing moods within an image can be achieved by simple techniques and experimentation of analogue photography.
You will be building a pinhole camera (camera obscura), pushing the perception of what a camera should look like and leave the course with the knowledge of how to develop your own unique images.
This course will give you the opportunity to rediscover photography in a different way. Whether you just want to discover the medium, want to enrich digital skills, learn about different ways of image making, or are a photography enthusiast, this course is designed to cater for all levels.
What to expect on the day:
You will build you own individual Pinhole Camera, learn about exposure times, develop your prints and learn how to do a contact print.
