The Magic of Lensless Photography

Explore alternative process photography and create stunning, unconventional images on light-sensitive paper without a lens! You’ll build pinhole cameras for use outside of class, then return to the darkroom where the magic will begin. Learn the chemical processes needed to develop paper negatives from your pinhole camera and the procedures for creating shadow-like photograms and abstract chemigrams. All supplies included and no previous darkroom experience required.
