    Melbourne - Pinhole Day Workshop

    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:

    http://www.melbournephoto.org.au/lat...pril-25th.html

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

    -Tim

    The Melbourne Camera Club celebrates World Wide Pinhole Day on Sunday April 25th 2010.

    A workshop will be held in the club rooms on the corner of Dorcas and Ferrars Streets, South Melbourne.

    It will be a “hands on” workshop and we will be covering:

    - Building your own pinhole camera

    - Taking photos with your pinhole camera

    - Developing and contact printing photos taken with your pinhole cameras

    You will need to bring:

    - A box or milo-tin to build your camera out of that can be made light tight. (Boxes can be any size or shape, however we suggest something between the size of a large matchbox and a shoe box is ideal)

    - $10 fee to cover materials and tea & bikkies

    - Enthusiasm!

    We will supply the rest of the materials.

    The workshop starts at 10am and finishes at 5pm.

    No experience with photography is necessary, participants will be encouraged to scan and upload photos taken on the day to the world wide pinhole day website: http://www.pinholeday.org/

    For more information and to reserve a place, please contact: mcc-blackandwhite@melbournephoto.org.au

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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 .
