Meeting Notes…

(Cover Image by Gerald Figal)

Pinhole Photography…

First, there was the workshop / shoot at Centennial Park last Sunday; Denney under the weather, but Gerald brought a bunch of film cameras w/ pin holes and we shot for a couple of hours. (Gerald was also kind enough to do the processing and scanning for us.)

At our meeting last night they discussed some of the theory and history of pinhole photography, and Gerald discussed some of his own work as well as some that members brought in…a very enjoyable and informative event.

Those who shot on Sunday may want to submit their work to the WW Pinhole site. It is non-competitive and they will post your pix. The deadline is May 31.
