Each camp is held at the historic home of Olive Rush, currently the Friends Meeting Hall at 630 Canyon Road, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The space is a beautiful adobe home with a rambling back yard situated about half way up Canyon Road offering a plethora of image making options for the pinhole photographer.
In this beautiful small group setting we will build our 4×5 super wide pinhole cameras and get a hands on approach to the geometry of photography. As we experience the camera obscura first hand we gain an intimate understand of the way light moves and images are revealed. We will expose and develop images, made with black and white photographic film and paper, while exploring unique locations. Negatives will be digitally scanned for quick viewing while our printing will be done in the alternative process of cyanotype. As a group we will create a short pinhole animation that will be digitized onto a disc for each participant along with scans of their images.
Join us for adventures in pinhole photography and the camera obscura and explore the history, art and techniques of this beautiful and intuitive process in its simplest and most rewarding form.
The workshop runs nights & weekends 21–28 September, 2007, at Friends Meeting Hall, Santa Fe, NM, US.
