The Basics of Film Photography for Teens

The beginning of photography was answering the question, how to capture and hold a real life image!  This week of photography will trace the development of photography by experimenting with different cameras from pinhole box to paint cans to 35mm and finally 120 film. Students will build the first camera and all other types of cameras will be provided including film. Be prepared to experiment and learn like the many inventors. *Materials Cost: $25 due at first class. More info: karenkeating5002@gmail.com. 5 sessions.
