What you'll do
In this workshop you will get acquainted with the process of taking black and white pictures with a pinhole camera as well as building your own camera from cardboard, tape and a tin can. To begin with, I'll explain the basics of pinhole photography, and we'll each build our own pinhole camera. Following this process you will learn to load photographic paper in the camera and be given instructions on how to use the camera. We will use about an hour in the neighborhood, finding adequate motifs, each exposing our pieces of paper. Afterwards you will learn how to make a developing solution from natural ingredients and we'll develop the pictures together. We aim at producing 1-2 black and white photographs pr. person. Of course, everybody gets to keep their homebuilt camera as well as their pinhole photos!
You will be served coffee/tea/water and a small snack
I will provide all materials for the workshop
My name is Julie. I am an experienced photographer with an uncontrollable passion for pinhole photography. Pinhole photography, from which all other kinds of photography stems, holds the key to understanding photography itself. The magic of photography reveals itself though the basic procedures of constructing the pinhole camera, taking pictures one sheet at a time and developing the pictures with a homemade solution of c-vitamin, mint and baking soda. Working with long exposures, this method has given me an opportunity to explore the world in a way that allows another way of perceiving my surroundings, movement and time, producing quite remarkable and unpredictable photographs. I very much enjoy sharing this method of 'slow photography' in an exclusive workshop with a small group.

Where you'll be
The workshop will take place in my apartment as well as in the nearby area. Since we need the most light possible for the exposure of the photographs we're aiming to get some sunny weather. We will move around in a small group so no one will get lost. If outdoor activity is challenged by rain or heavy wind, we will complete all of the workshop indoors. It is possible to photograph indoors with the pinhole cameras and longer exposure time.
