The Handmade Camera is a one-day workshop that explores the fundamentals of photography using pinhole cameras and camera obscuras. We will use custom-cut paper negatives in sizes ranging from just a couple of inches to a couple of feet. This workshop will explore pinhole photography which is one of the earliest and most accessible forms of the medium. Participants will make their own cameras and use paper negatives of varying sizes to capture an image. A number of metering approaches will be reviewed from mathematical formulas to smartphone applications. We will also consider both traditional forms of the pinhole camera as well as alternative approaches (i.e. experimentation with shape, size, and number of holes). In addition, a room-sized camera obscura will be made available to participants as a way of considering the basic mechanics of pinhole.
