Foto Frenzy (Brisbane) Camera Obscura and WPPD prelude: 20 April 12 Noon to 4.00pm

On this day the photographers Cooper+Spowart will create a camera obscura in the foyer of Gallery Frenzy for visitors to view and make photographs in. Additionally attendees will be advised on how to convert Digi and Film cameras into pinhole devices to participate in World Pinhole Photography Day on 28 April, 2013.

Foto Frenzy is situated @ Unit 3 – 429 Old Cleveland Road, Coorparoo. (Next to Brisbane Camera Hire)

HERE IS THE PLAN

The foyer of Foto Frenzy will be blacked out – a pinhole will be placed in the window facing Bennetts Road. Screens will be set up inside the gallery area to image the light from outside.

The camera obscura will be available for viewing from 12 Noon until 4.00pm and we are hoping for a sunny day as that will yield the most visible best results.

At 1.00, 2.00 and 3.00pm Vicky and Doug will demonstrate how to convert your Digi or Film SLR into a pinhole camera. Bring a plastic body cover if you have one, it may be able to be drilled for pinhole insertion. Materials will be available for you to make your own pinhole.

And at 1.30, 2.30 and 3.30pm Darren will demonstrate wet darkroom pinhole camera shooting (with a simple box & paper) and print processing in the NEW Foto Frenzy darkroom.

Instructions for preparing and uploading pinhole photos to the World Pinhole Photography Day site will be available.
