Participants will be supported and tutored throughout, with the emphasis on developing a landscape series in colour or black & white.

DOUBLE-EXPOSURE PORTRAITS
Sat 18 Mar £50 per person
This style of portrait photography used to be something that required a darkroom and printing skills – not to mention endless sheets of expensive printing paper and messy chemicals. Not any more - the digital world makes these wonderful portraits possible and they make beautiful gifts for a loved one, or simply a great print to hang on the wall. Apart from your imagination and your creative curiosity, you’ll need your own camera and memory pen.

Any age welcome, under-18’s half price when accompanied by adult. Additional fee on day of £5.00 per participant to cover materials.

 

PINHOLE PHOTOGRAPHY

How on earth do you make a useable camera out of a coffee tin or an old shoebox? Come along and find out – it’s a lot of fun. Build your own b&w pinhole camera, and shoot your own landscapes or ghost-like portraits with the long exposures this kind of photography requires.
