Pinhole photography class at the Royal Photographic Society in Bath
It is quite easy to think of photography as being a highly complex and technical process however, the principles of photography are very simple and a basic pinhole camera can be constructed with the types of items found in a typical rubbish bin. While the image quality of these cameras is basic by modern standards, there is a mystery to the pictures and in some situations, a pinhole camera can capture images beyond the ability of even the most sophisticated digital SLR. Throughout 2017, I will be running a series of one-day pinhole photography classes at the Royal Photographic Society’s (RPS) HQ in Bath.
The workshops introduce the fundamentals of photography and camera construction before the students make their own cameras and use them to undertake a set of tasks. The students will process their negatives in the darkroom.
If you have never seen a picture appear in a developing dish, this is one of the wonders of analogue photography.
During the class, we also look at contemporary photographers that are exploring the potential of pinhole cameras.
No prior knowledge of photography is required and all materials are provided.
