Creative Exchange – Introduction to Pinhole Photography

Construct your own pinhole camera from cardboard and gaffer tape, and learn the basics of pinhole photography.


Welcome to Kickstart Arts’ Creative Exchange: Sharing Skills and Culture.

Session Title: Introduction to Pinhole Photography

Description: You’ll learn everything there is to know about pinhole photography, starting with the process of making the camera, how to load photographic paper, selecting a subject and exposing the negative (taking the photo). Finally, you’ll process the negative to create the photo; a ‘positive’ print. Suits all ages. Note: We recommend younger children be accompanied by an adult.
