Heather Oelklaus is driving her pinhole camera truck up from Colorado Springs – check it out!
(Heather will be teaching a class this summer on making chemigrams – another fun project.)
In celebration of World-Wide Pinhole Day, CPAC presents a family-friendly pinhole workshop at the historic Zang Mansion. This is a camera-building, photo-taking, and film-developing event to celebrate and create work that will be added to the World Wide Pinhole Day online gallery.
You will learn how to make pinhole cameras from a variety of sources – cereal boxes, oatmeal containers, cigar boxes, and even Altoids tins make terrific camera bodies. Shoot some images close by and then learn the basics of B&W chemical photography in the darkroom. Our instructors will be on hand to help you develop your images and refine your technique.
The “best of” each of the participants work will be scanned and uploaded to the WWPD Gallery. Some cameras are available so you can start shooting straight away if you prefer not to make your own. We will have an army of moles developing prints for those of you not wanting to be in the darkroom, but half the fun is developing and printing your own images!
From the WWPD website: “Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day was established to celebrate the joy of simple creativity using the medium of lensless photography. We want to show that, from a device as simple as a cardboard box with a tiny hole, you can create inspiring images.” www. pinholeday.org
