A few weeks ago I attended a pinhole camera workshop by Dave Kemp at InterAccess. This workshop was a real inspiration, and since then, I’ve been going a little bananas with this whole pinhole thing. It’s also helped me understand a bit more about regular photography. I thought I’d pass along some of what I learned. In the workshop we used photographic paper as a negative in our pinhole cameras, and we had a darkroom setup with all the developing chemicals and timer, etc. I’m a little too impatient and lazy to mess around with that stuff, so I’ve been toying with using sheets of Polaroid 600 film to get instant gratification.
