PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD AT THE ARTS COUNCIL OF PRINCETON
This workshop will introduce students to pinhole photography. The workshop will begin in the darkroom (at the Arts Council of Princeton), cutting photo-sensitive paper and loading it into the homemade cameras provided by the instructor. The class will then move up the street to the Princeton University campus, where the process of image formation with pinhole cameras will be discussed and multiple images will be made. The class will then return to the darkroom to develop the images. Participants will leave the workshop with paper negatives, which can later be scanned and inverted to positive images and prints.
Participants will be provided pinhole cameras to use during the workshop and should bring their own tripod.
