Pinhole Camera Photography

April 25, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Who says mud season in Maine is boring? On the contrary, the view through an aperture of a pinhole camera can give a whole new perspective to the chilly wet month of April. A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens. Each participant in this workshop will create a light proof box with a small hole through which light passes and then projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box onto photo paper. This is known as the camera obscura effect. Participants will develop their images in the Waterfall Arts darkroom and become acquainted with the basics of black and white photo processing. No matter your level of experience, come bundle up and take your cameras and creative spirit into the great unknown; the Waterfall Arts property. Promise of hot cocoa to finish off the adventure!
