Pinhole Photography and Camera Obscuras


Come and discover 2400 years of photon fun with pinhole photography expert Justin Quinnell.

Experiment with various camera obscuras and pinhole cameras which can be made and used in the classroom or just for fun.

The stand will have many examples of obscuras, from simple pinhole experiments to making use of the holes in a cream cracker. There will also be obscuras to draw perspective, a digital projector you can make for less than £1 and giant I-scuras you can wear on your head and view the world as it should be seen - upside down.
