Handmade 16mm Camera
In this workshop, Lindsay McIntyre will show you how to make one of the simplest and earliest photographic devices - the pinhole. We’ll go over the basics of pinhole photography and you’ll understand how light, aperture, focal length and the camera obscura come into play. You’ll learn how to construct your own 16mm motion picture pinhole camera from scratch and how to use pinhole lenses on other motion picture cameras. We’ll also test out our new devices and hand-process the results. Handmade cameras are yours to keep after the workshop.
Price: FREE for AFCOOP members, $20 non-members (tax included)
