    Hi everyone, I'm organizing a pinhole camera workshop for next Sunday (April 25th) which is world wide pinhole day (by coincidence this is also anzac day).

    Might be a good chance for some APUG'ers to get together, anyway the details are here:

    Email or PM if you think you'll attend. It should be a fun day. :D

    -Tim

    Looks like fun. I would love to go however I must march. A local arts group wants me to run a similar course. I would like to see how they did it.
    Thanks

    That would be my luck, tossing 2 milo tins into the recycle bin last Tuesday night!!
    I've migrated to Sustagen tins, but will be a while before this big tin is emptied!!

    Sounds great, too bad I won't be around for it though.

    However, I'll be up around Noosa for my brothers wedding and will be taking my semi-pinhole converted Clack along (I'm still not entirely sure if it even counts as a pinhole???). We'll be at the dawn service at his local RSL, so who knows what might come from that. hope the sessions back here go wonderfully.

    I'd really love to go, but it's pretty hard to commit to the whole day. The kids would love it if it was a bit shorter too. Anyway, have fun. :smile:

    No problem, Kev!
    Create a pinhole image in your own time and submit it to the World Pinhole Photography Day website and, presto! You're famous, sans kids. :D

    Good idea, Gary. I may even make a pinhole camera with the help of the kids on the day and submit it.

    Yes, that will be about the easiest way to do it, although I imagine focussing on the ground glass could be problematic? :wink:

    Greetings Kevin , Make a couple of ' Lensboards ' from black matte-board with a 1/2" hole in the middle and just tape some foil over the inside of this hole, prick a ' pin-hole' into the foil. A simple shutter ( Flap ) over the front will serve as a shutter. Load your D.darks with paper ,3 ISO and there you go : bellows extension can be from say 75mm to 250 mm , you only have to measure you pin-hole aperature for exposure ........Cheers Barrie B.
    If you are more sure of the pinhole exposure , FILM can be used .:D

    Rightio, my Zero multi-format has now been loaded with Acros 100, set to 6x9 (maybe a late change to 6x6...) and this location has been singled out for pinhole attention. Just have to research the tide...

    You're mad, ya bugger. At the worst the Zero Image will float--where it will end up is another matter.

    Todays gathering @ MCC was one of the most exceptional days. Everyone had so much fun & took some very stunning pictures. And I thought I had to spend $$$$$ for a great camera. Shows what I knew !

    I have no problem the pic is posted. But Shane really deserves the credit he came up with camera design. I just assembled per his instructions & then experimented. Was more luck on my part & guidance of knowledgeable photographers @ MCC who are teaching me the tricks to finding a prime location for a cool shot.
