Introduction to Pinhole Photography with Janet Neuhauser

This introductory workshop will cover the history of pinhole photography, contemporary pinhole photographers, and available resources. Time will be devoted to building your own long exposure pinhole camera from an altoid tin as part of The Pinhole Project and you will also learn how to use a pinhole body cap on your own DSLR. 

All materials are provided to build and fill at least two altoid tin pinhole cameras. Janet will provide instruction on how to use them, in a location of your choosing, exposing them for an extended period of time, and sending them back to her for scanning. You will receive your images back from Janet via email and as an archival inkjet print.

Please bring a commercially made pinhole body cap and your own DSLR. A tripod is optional, but recommended to bring if you have one. Shooting will take place outside on our plaza.


Saturday, September 30, 2017  |  10am - 1pm  |  BIMA Classroom & outside plaza  |  $60, includes all materials for altoid tin pinhole cameras. Bring your own pinhole body cap and DSLR.
