Digital Pinhole Photography with Brian Piitz

Digital Pinhole Photography with Brian Piitz at the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology

Introduction to Digital Pinhole Photography with Brian Piitz on January 20th at the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology in the Woodshed building, from 1 pm – 4 pm.

With the introduction of digital photography in the 1980s, analogue photography and the attendant hands on darkroom practices have steadily been in decline. However in recent years there has been a renewed interest in analogue photography and in particular with 19th century practices. This workshop offers an opportunity to bridge the divide between digital and analogue technologies. Employing a pinhole body cap on a digital camera and referencing the earliest ‘camera obscura’ like apparatuses of photography the workshop will offer participants the opportunity to engage in the act of photography without access to the many electronic and automatic functions of the digital camera. Participants will be introduced to the creative potential of pinhole photography through presentations, discussion and demonstrations on how to transform their digital camera into a pinhole camera.

This workshop has been made possible through the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Hamilton. Admission is free but pre-registration is required. To register, please contact Bethany Osborne or 647-248-3893.

When: Saturday, January 20th, 2018, 1 pm – 4 pm
Where: Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology, Woodshed building, 900 Woodward Ave
