Pinhole photography is the best way to understand light and the alchemy of the photographic process. This workshop will make you conscious of the photographic “mystery” of light, a question that has been in humanity long ago. You will learn to make a camera with recycled materials and take pictures with the basics: just a Pringles can. Join this workshop to create black and white analog images and understand the origin of photography. Experience how the eye and the camera work. Experiment with time exposure to rediscover the surroundings of Photodom. Develop the photos using the basic darkroom chemicals and create the final version of your images with your mobile phone. No experience is required.
