Title: Pinhole Photography: Pure, Simple, and Unbelievable.

Venue: 700 James Lane Trentham East
Date: Friday 8th June.
Times: Fri 10.00am to 5pm.

An introduction to the thrills of serious image-making, by losing control, of going with the laws of chance, and of forgetting all those knobs, dials, rules and gadgets normally associated with committed photography.

Anthony, after 25 years behind a viewfinder, has spent three years totally entranced by these magic home-made boxes, and will spend the day showing photographs, discussing how to make and operate a pinhole, and demonstrating how to go about making an image, so that your photographs really mean something beyond the fascination of the process.
A field trip and some processing/printing will be part of the workshop. We will supply basic materials and processing chemicals.

Level of skill: some knowledge of photography useful but not essential.
Class size: Maximum 12, Cancel workshop if less than 4.

Cost: $175.00 [subscribers sponsors & concession $150.00]
Lunch, morning and afternoon teas provided
