On the last Saturday of July I’ll be teaching a class on Pinhole Camera Photography at Toronto Botanical Garden. This is a hands-on class where you’ll learn how to build a pinhole camera and develop black and white negatives in a darkroom. You’ll also learn how to set up a pop-up darkroom at home so you can continue making pinhole photos whenever you’re feeling inspired.
This class won’t appeal to everyone. The analogue process is much slower than today’s Smartphones and the resulting photos are moody and can’t easily be duplicated; any pinhole photos you make will truly be one of a kind.
While there are many photo Apps that can transform your digital photos by simulating the look of film grain, lens flare, vignettes or scratches, we’re going to be creating the real thing. The pinhole photo at the top gives you an idea of what kind of images you can expect to make.
If you have patience and want to challenge yourself, this class costs $38 for the public or $31 for TBG members.
Materials are all included - just bring your curiosity!
