This workshop covers DIY large format cameras, shooting and processing with Chris Leyland. In the morning you will build your own 10x8" pinhole camera which you can take away with you (this is included in the price). No particular skills are required for this. In the afternoon you will shoot with your camera on direct positive paper, and process it on site. This is sure to be a day like no other, aimed at inspiring you to try new ideas and techniques. You can bring a sturdy tripod (with the larger 3/8" thread size) for your camera if you like, but it is not necessary.
