Workshop: Pinhole Photography with Michael Waite

Workshop: Pinhole Photography with Michael Waite

‘In this, hands on workshop you will explore the basic principles of photography by spending a day making photographs with simple pinhole cameras. A pinhole camera has the essentials of what is required to make a photograph – a light tight container, a small opening and some light sensitive material.

The course will cover a range of pinhole cameras from simple and homemade to the more sophisticated professionally made cameras. You will explore paper negatives, film and digital applications. There will be a significant darkroom component, however prior darkroom experience is not necessary.’
