It's Been Busy Around Here: MOHAI and WWPD

The Pinhole Project continues and continues.  On March 31st, the Pinhole Project went to the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle where we did a workshop for three hours, for their Maker Day. (https://mohai.org/event/maker-day-pinhole-cameras/) It was a beautiful Seattle day and there was an early baseball game at 1:00;  Needless to say museum attendance was down but in three hours we stayed busy and help visitors make about 60 cameras.  I made a 3 hours exposure with my 4 x 5 pinhole camera on film but it is still at the lab being developed.  I will post that when it comes back.  The MOHAI workshop was an exercise in organization.  I had a great team with three volunteers from Bainbridge High School to help everyone make their cameras.  I will start to receive these cameras back in the mail around mid May.  Look for the latest news post about this at that time.

On April 29th (in three weeks!), the Pinhole Project is involved in an event at the Photographic Center NW (pcnw.org).  John Blalock, an accomplished Seattle pinhole photographer and I will teach attendees  how to do all kinds of pinhole exposures on film and paper in homemade cameras, in Holgas, commercially made  cameras and crazy inventions that work  and also with DSLR's with pinhole body caps.  We are making the daylight studio at PCNW into a giant camera obscura.  And we have a link where participants can upload their work directly to the World Wide Pinhole Day website;  (here is a link for the website generally;  our link is not active yet).  http://pinholeday.org/    It will be a really fun and exciting day.  Go to pcnw.org to register.  We will have darkrooms and digital labs available for post processing.

So get on-line and register for the World Wide Pinhole Day workshop.  See you there.  Below is a poster we made for the day and the link to register.
