Build your own pinhole camera and experience the simplest form of photography!

Learn the fundamentals of photography and the math behind the physics of light, using your own self-built pinhole camera to make exposures and print the results.

This tutorial format class will cover the complexity of the physics of light and the simplicity of building a reusable pinhole camera out of found materials, calculating exposures and making prints.

What this workshop covers:

  • How light works in photography.
  • Formula between pinhole size and focal length.
  • Building your own pinhole camera.
  • Calculating exposure times.
  • Making your own prints from your paper negatives
  • Each participant will bring home their own self-made pinhole camera and prints.

What’s included:

  • All tools, materials and apparatus.

What to bring (optional):

  • Bring your own cleaned empty food cans (only of certain sizes, check in with the tutor).

Who can join?:
