We will meet at our atelier for a one-hour workshop where we will show you how to construct a pinhole camera from a sardine can. Along the way, we'll drink coffee and talk about general optical concepts, so you will understand how the whole camera mechanism works. Then we'll go on around half an our exploration through Lisbon's neighborhoods to learn pinhole photography techniques and to practice some tricks—double and triple exposures, panoramic shots, and so on.
I'm a photographer who has lived in Lisbon for three years. Together with Maitane Ussia and Ze Maria, I am a co-founder Projeto Lá Tinha—a social art project promoting pinhole photography. As interest grew, our workshops opened in more places. Now it's a good time to share the experience with everyone who wants to enjoy this Portugal-based activity, to extend our photo archive, and to let more people know about it. The project has spread to Euskadi in the North of Spain, and to Brazil. To know more, visit instagram.com/projetolatinha and diegobastoscunha.tumblr.com.
One sardine's tin camera Though made of reusable materials, it's not a disposable camera. You can recharge with new film…
