Plastics, Pinholes, and Point and Shoots


While modern digital cameras move perpetually, toward “perfecting” the photographic image, more and more photographers and artists are turning to unconventional cameras to explore the aesthetic possibilities that often result from these cheaply made cameras. While digital imaging tools now dominate commercial photography, low end, analog cameras have made a come back because their flaws and peculiarities often lead to unique and more interesting results. In this course students use cameras that are stripped down to their basic elements, to gain a better understanding of the elements of the photographic process. Though slide lecture, demonstration, and hands-on projects students explore use of pinhole cameras, Holga cameras, analog point and shoot cameras, and experimental large scale pinhole photography.
