Chemical Photography with Richard Cynan Jones
During this workshop, you will be able to construct a pinhole camera from recycled materials and explore the creative possibilities of low-fi photography.
Learn how to make test exposures with paper negatives. Then use your handmade cameras to take photographs, which will then be developed in a darkroom (which you can learn to make for your own practise). You’ll then be able to take home your pinhole camera and two negatives.
