San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
In this session participants will be able to make and use a simple camera that takes photographic images. These photographs demonstrate the historical development of cameras in the 19th Century. Initially, this will entail a cardboard construction, but can de extended using improvised metal drinks containers.
Participants will need to bring scalpels/ Stanley knives, metal straight edge, pencils and a ruler. Photographs will be taken locally around Backlit and developed in the darkroom.
All other materials and equipment will be provided for the session.
