Digital Pinhole Photography Meetup

Digital Pinhole Photography Meetup

Saturday the 30th of July
Little Five Points - 1:00 pm - 2 hours
It's always good to stay creative when shooting photography. Walking around and taking images is always fun, but after a while can leave you with the same images over and over again. For this meetup, we will create digital pinhole cameras using just some every day items. Digital Pinhole Cameras are a fun way to create images you wouldn't normally shoot. There is a big focus on contrast and you get to experience what the world of photography was like in the late 1800s.

The Intro to Speedlight class far exceeded my expectations. Helen covered all the topics listed concisely and well-organized. I now have a much better understanding of Speedlights on and off camera, from the past to the present

This was an amazing class. Austin took his time with each and every one of us. I learned so much. He looked at our photos and offered suggestions to make them better. He even showed us things not included in the class. I highly recommend any class he does. I will be enrolling in future classes.
