Darkroom Basics and Pinhole Photography
Time: October 25-26, Nov 1-2
Location: Three Shadows Photography Art Centre
Instructor: Bob St. Cyr
Fee: 2000 RMB per person (material fee included)
Photography is a wonderful process of visual expression. Today, digital photography has mostly replaced the once popular film and wet darkroom process of image making. This workshop combines basic darkroom processing and visual exploration through pinhole photography. Students will first learn to make silver gelatin prints in traditional darkroom, an later to make your own pinhole camera. Students are encouraged to develop films during the weekday. In the end, there will be a public demonstration of your cameras and photos. (Translation will be provided.)
