In this course, students will construct a simple camera with a pinhole 'lens'.

We will test it using instant film to determine its unique exposure times and explore photography in and around picturesque Rock Point Park in Port Moody.

We will discuss camera modifications and exposure techniques to creatively manipulate the images in the analog world and explore digital enhancements to bring out their best qualities.

Pairing these easy-to-construct cameras with instant film means students can explore the simple beauty of pinhole photography without the need for a traditional darkroom, chemicals, or expensive equipment.

When the class is complete, students can continue exploring using only a minimal home-based setup.
