In this workshop we will build a full size walk in camera obscura.
We will also discuss the portrait and it's rich history.
We will make a couple of portraits using commonplace materials and tools and discuss not the lights you use, but the way you use them.
The subtlety and nuance of light can elevate an image and fill it with texture and mystery.
