Participants bring a round empty cereal box to the OCC classroom, and experience the inside of a camera obscura. The leaders will present some history of pinhole photography and WPPD and see some examples of cameras and photos the leaders have made. They will convert their cereal boxes into pinhole cameras, and make negatives using enlarging paper. They will develop the paper negatives in the OCC darkroom, and make contact print positives. No darkroom experience necessary. $5.00 registration fee includes all materials and chemicals except the cereal boxes. Begins 10:00 AM, ends about 1:30 PM.
