Pinhole Photography Workshop

Submitted by signe on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 10:02

Pinhole photography workshop led by Marcis Bendiks, one of Latvia’s most experienced photographers and a black and white master. The three-day workshop took students through some of the theory relating to photography in general and to pinhole cameras specifically, as well as covering the practical side of building a pinhole camera. Participants designed and built their own cameras and developed the prints they took.


Pinhole photography is a challenging and interesting area of photography. It forces even experienced photographers to think again about what photography is and what it means to them. The methods of pinhole photography are unusual and the equipment strange, but even for first-time pinhole photographers it can provide unexpected and beautiful results. Pinhole cameras are home made and so the process of photography involves not only taking photographs, but also the process of building the camera.
