Hi Everyone,

Our friends in The Light Exchange are running a Pinhole Photography course in August over 2 weekends and there are still a few places left...

They Say:
"This is an opportunity for photography-lovers of all levels of experience to discover the beauty of pinhole images. Discover how any container-like object can be made into a camera and capture the world in a whole new way. You will make a camera obscura from cardboard tubing and tracing paper, then make a pinhole camera, develop your exposures in the darkroom and then scan your prints for further experimentation in Photoshop. We will also look at contemporary artists who use pinhole images in their work. All materials will be provided plus tea, coffee and biscuits!"

The course runs Sat + Sun, August 9th + 10th, Sat + Sun, August 16th + 17th, 10.30am - 3.30pm each day and costs €280. The booking deposit is €50.

For further information please see http://www.thelightexchange.ie/courses.htm

Chat Soon,
Team Darklight x
