Toy camera photography workshop with Kurt Norlin, Oregon, US

Posted 23 August, 2009 in Workshops

Workshop flyer:

Tired of all the technicalities of high-end cameras? Toy Camera photography is photography at its most basic, freeing up the photographic artist to concentrate on the creative side of image making. Often made with a plastic lens and limited controls, these simple devices produce images that have unique visual qualities. The students in this workshop will gain an overview of toy camera photography, and how to properly set up and load the camera for the best results. Cameras will be available or bring your own. This is very much a hands on class. No prior darkroom experience needed, just a sense of play, and a desire to see the world in a new way.
