Pinhole/zone plate workshop with Scott McMahon

The Controlled Light Leak: Beyond the Oatmeal Container with Scott McMahon

August 4-8 (5 day)

Learn new methods of pinhole imaging, camera design and concept. Participants will investigate the different principles of pinhole and construct and then photograph with their own camera creations. We will experiment with and even make our own zone plates (a distant relative of pinhole), retrofit existing cameras, 35mm, medium and large format, Holga, even digital pinhole apertures. We will also explore slit imaging and multiple pinholes in this 5-day lens-free extravaganza.
Beginner to advanced.
