We are thrilled to announce that guest teacher RA Friedman will be teaching pinhole photography to us!
RA Friedman, M.F.A., will lead us through a 3 hour pinhole photography workshop with demos and hands-on practice, using simple and commonly available equipment and materials. The pinhole camera is an amazing low-cost photographic tool that opens up a host of image-making possibilities and will make you a better photographer. Create jewel-like, painterly photographs full of light and atmosphere.
This three hour hands-on, down-to-earth and informal workshop will jump-start your pinhole adventure. You'll be making pinhole photographs that very day! You'll learn about the many gear and technique options available and get to try many of them including using instant film and special pinhole caps for digital cameras. Learn how combining basic and primitive analog tools with digital techniques can open up new creative horizons. Indoor and outdoor lighting and ways of determining correct exposure will be covered as well.
Please bring your camera with you as well as a tripod if you have one. RA will provide everything else.
We will meet to the left of Bethesda Fountain when facing the fountain. Mindy will be there too, carrying a red bag to help identify them.
