Pinhole/Zone Plate/Camera Obscura Workshop for Film and Digital
Workshop presenter: Spencer & Renner
Cost: $400 – plus materials fee at class
Mon. – Fri., 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., room V2022
Transcend photography through the pinhole and zone plate. In this fun workshop weâ€™ll make images with our own film-based and digital cameras or cameras built in the class. Weâ€™ll also build a large camera obscura, and emerge with an enhanced understanding of how these cameras work. Our images will be made using both traditional chemical and digital techniques. Each day weâ€™ll spend time crusing Santa Cruz, photographing, and working toward an expressive personal portfolio of work.
No previous experience is necessary..
