In our time together, students will explore a brief history of pinhole imaging before setting out to load their own pinhole cameras with photographic paper and head out around the school environment to make unique photographs. From here, we will enter the darkroom where the latent (invisible) image is translated into a paper negative with tones of black, white and greys.
Once our prints are processed and dry we will have the option of scanning them or making positive images in the darkroom. To round out the course, students will explore a very accessible alternative process called cyanotype printing, which is similar to making photographs in a darkroom where the only ingredients are coated paper, ample sunlight and water.

BOB St. CYR was granted the Canadian Association of Photographic Arts Maple Leaf and Associate Fellowship Awards for photographic achievement, service and exceptional contributions to photography in 2010. He has also exhibited and won national & international awards with his fine-art images. Although Bob is familiar with digital photography and employs it from time-to-time, he primarily works with medium and large film format lens and pinhole cameras. He also enjoys the challenge of constantly working to better himself not only as a photographer but as a darkroom craftsman from processing film to printing archival processed silver gelatin fiber black and white prints.
