Digital Pinhole Camera

Tuesday June 26, 2018

This one day workshop will introduce students to the creative potential of pinhole photography through presentations, discussion and a demonstration on how to convert a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera for use as a pinhole camera.

At a time when digital devices have become the dominant means to produce photographs there is a renewed interest in earlier photographic processes and technologies.  The use of a pinhole camera is one such technology. A pinhole camera is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side through which light from a scene passes to project an image on the opposite surface. As a result, exposures are often long, rendering motion as a blur, and making faster moving subjects invisible.

Suitable for photographers with knowledge of basic skills. Students are required to bring their own SLR cameras for each class. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their camera manuals to class for instructional assistance; course instructors are not responsible for knowing the operation of each camera.

This course meets in the AGO's Weston Family Learning Centre. Participants must be 18 or older. Space is limited.
