More info: In pinhole photography, a tiny pin-sized hole replaces the actual camera lens capturing an image from a unique perspective that can be rich in detail and atmosphere. While the focus is not as sharp as a conventional lens camera or digital photograph, the resulting image has an equal degree of sharpness across the entire range of the image’s depth of field. In this workshop we will use conventional black & white photographic paper to produce the ‘negative’ image that may then be printed as a positive b&w photograph.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is an international event created to promote and celebrate the art of pinhole photography.

Studio 224 is pleased to support this international project and we invite you to join us in exploring the distinctive features of historic Port Washington’s waterfront setting. Participation in Saturday’s workshop is not required. You may use the camera you constructed in the Saturday workshop or bring a pinhole camera of your own. Studio 224’s darkroom will be available between 10am and 2:30pm for processing paper negatives.

Anyone who takes a pinhole photograph on April 28 is welcome to scan that image and upload it to the WPPD website where it will become part of the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day celebration's online gallery.
