The Toy Camera

Explore the creative possibilities of the non-conventional camera, from the plastic “toy” Holga to the homemade pinhole. Get back to the basics of film photography, utilizing simplified photographic tools which will allow you to arrive at a poetic and sensitive handling of light as a key element of composition. Discover how a “lack of control” process can result in a sophisticated image.


Students are required to purchase a HOLGA camera for this course.

To participate in this class, student must be 18 years of age or the minimum of a high school graduate (or the equivalent).
