Pinhole Photography: low-tech, high-science ... and a little bit of math.

The ultimate in camera hacking, pinhole photography allows you to make cameras out of just about anything and frees you from the limitations (and costs) inherent in using a manufactured camera. This workshop will concentrate on the physics behind pinhole photography. Instructor, Dave Kemp will present some simple methods of calculating the parameters of pinhole cameras for proper exposure, in order to achieve your artistic goals. At the same time, the workshop will provide opportunity for experimentation and unexpected surprises.

Dave Kemp is a visual artist whose practice looks at the intersections and interactions between art, science and technology: particularly at how these fields shape our perception and understanding of the world. Dave is currently a PhD candidate in the Art and Visual Culture program at the University of Western Ontario and has a Master of Visual Studies from The University of Toronto, where he completed the Collaborative Program in Knowledge Media Design. Prior to this, he earned an Image Arts (photography) BFA from Ryerson University and his BScE in Mechanical Engineering at Queen’s University.
