This 3 hour workshop will introduce you to the camera obscura and the fundamentals of pinhole photography. You will make your own pinhole body cap and turn your DSLR into a digital pinhole camera.
The workshop will commence with a historical and technical introduction drawing on 2500 years since the first written record of a camera obscura, the theory of how pinhole works and therefore its potential uses and creative potential.
Next, each participant will prepare their DSLR's for a picture taking session outdoors. You will be guided through the production of your own pinhole camera covers, and will also have access to pre-made pinhole body caps for your cameras. Nikon and Canon SLR Body Cap's will be provided - other models ie. Sony, Fuji etc. will have to bring their own body caps.
The group will experiment with creative techniques such long exposures.
The workshop will round up with a review of the work produced in the day and you will go away armed with the tools to build your own pinhole lenses and keep experimenting.
The workshop is run by Sebastian Sussmann, a specialist in Black and White Printing and alternative processes.
Requirements: Digital SLR Camera, a good understanding of your camera settings and a basic understanding of exposure
