Dear summer, where did you go?" by Shamila Chaudhary

Join us for breakfast and a mini workshop with photographer Laila Abdul-Hadi Jadallah. Laila will be discussing her creative process and leading the group in creating a "digital pinhole" using their own cameras, and lens caps that will be provided.

In a current photography culture of instant gratification, workshop attendees will create modern pinhole cameras, treating our cameras in an analog fashion inspired by the roots of photography and traditional practices, including: how to look at light, frame your subject and how this practice can inspire us to wait for the ‘decisive moment.’

Space is limited to 15 people. Those attending will need to bring their own digital SLR camera, (and tripod and shutter remote if they want but not required). Any photographs taken will not be developed/printed during this workshop.
