A practical online workshop transforming a room in your home into a camera obscura and then using it to capture the projected view in a variety of ways.
Day 1, using everyday materials (no specialist equipment needed), covers the construction of a camera obscura and capturing the view digitally.
On Day 2, which is more advanced and will require more specific materials, we will capture the view direct onto analogue photographic paper creating paper negatives and then contact printing these into positive prints.
On both days we will be meeting in the morning to cover the basics then regrouping throughout the day to share results. They’ll be plenty of opportunities to discuss everything from the basics to more advanced considerations around the use of lenses and ways of capturing the image.
All skill levels are welcome.
A list of the materials you’ll need to gather before the workshop is available to those who sign up.
