T11. Pinhole Street Photography
Jeff McConnell 
 4 HOURS, 07/20 THURSDAY

In this workshop there will be a brief introduction to the world of street photography made with pinhole. You will learn camera design concepts and see examples. Then you will make your own 120 film camera. In the final stretch of the course the cameras will be ready and there's the possibility, if we are lucky, to go out and shoot!

Participants should bring fast 120 film, either BW or colour.

T36. How does a Cracker See? Tribute to Paolo Gioli
Jeff McConnell 
 4 HOURS, 22/07 SATURDAY 

In this workshop you will learn about the amazing Paolo Gioli and his cracker cameras, and then make one yourself. What would a cracker see? We will fabricate and troubleshoot cameras, then after a demonstration of shooting and developing paper negatives, load cameras, take pictures, develop them and make a show!

+ Participants are encouraged to bring small boxes or other objects ready to be transformed into cameras (even, your favorite crackers).

T18. Colodion húmedo al alcance de la mano
Célica Véliz
 4 HORAS, 20/07 JUEVES 

The wet collodion technique is a photographic taking process invented in 1851. With this method we can take pictures on glass or sheet metal that will be coated with a layer of salty collodion and immediately sensitized with a silver nitrate solution. The entire following procedure, which includes shooting, developing and fixing, must be done in a short period of time before the components dry. The negatives obtained in glass, when they have low density, can be painted black to create a positive (ambrotype) or other developing formulas can be used and thus have denser negatives, which will allow us to make contact copies in various techniques.In this workshop we will see the possibility of working not only with large format cameras with lenses.The idea is to expand the spectrum of cameras that we can use for the technique. Any camera that has option “B” (Bulb), that is, being able to open the shutter for as long as we need, will work. We will work with cameras of different formats and with pinhole cameras. As supports we will not only use glass: we will also use aluminum sheet and high-impact polystyrene plates.

T33. Accessible Wet Collodion
Célica Véliz
 4 HOURS 21/07 FRIDAY.

The wet collodion process is a photographic technique invented in 1851. With this method we can take images on glass or metal (tintypes) that will be coated with a layer of salted collodion to be immediately sensitized with a silver nitrate solution. All the following procedures, which includes taking the photos, developing and fixing must be done in a short period of time before the components dry. Negatives obtained in glass, when they have a low density, can be painted black to create a positive (ambrotype) or with other developing formulas can be used and thus have denser negatives, which will allow us to make contact prints in various techniques. In this workshop we will see the possibility of working not only with large format cameras with lenses. The idea is to open the spectrum of cameras that we can use for the technique.Any camera that has the option “B” (Bulb), that is, being able to open the shutter for as long as we need, will work. We are going to work with cameras of different formats and with pinhole cameras. As supports we will not only use glass: we will also use aluminum sheet and high impact polystyrene plates.

T43. Liquid Emulsion: Playing with Uncertainty
Naroa Pérez
 4 HOURS, 21/07 FRIDAY

In this workshop, practices will be carried out with some materials to be able to show the most basic steps, but it can be complicated as far as imagination takes us. The liquid emulsion is an alternative process that consists of adding one more step to the standardized process of photography on photographic paper in the darkroom. The interesting thing about this added step is that we can apply the emulsion to different materials and textures, making them photosensitive and having the possibility of printing images on almost any surface. The most common is to be able to make prints on different types of paper, with textures or extremely fine.

+Participants should bring negatives of their works.

T58. Emulsión líquida, jugando con la incertidumbre
Naroa Pérez
 4 HORAS, 22/07 SÁBADO

In this workshop we will practice with some materials to show the most basic steps, but it can get complicated as far as our imagination takes us. Liquid emulsion is an alternative process that consists of adding one more step to the standardized photography process on photographic paper in the laboratory. The interesting thing about this added step is thatwe can apply the emulsion to different materials and textures making them photosensitive and having the possibility of printing images on almost any surface.

+Participants must bring negatives of their work.

T52. Solarigrafía, astrofotografía estenopeica
JB Cunillera
 4 HORAS, 22/07 SÁBADO

A photosensitive, surprising, slow, artisanal, environmentally friendly and hybrid experience between art and science. Where to enjoy a long path in which different techniques are combined, analog at the beginning and digital at the end. You will learn how to capture and print without chemicals the traces of the sun's apparent path day after day in a single photograph. Which magically makes visible a beautiful hidden scene, which the human eye is not able to capture or retain on its own and with a pictorial appearance of a dreamscape. And starting from disused objects,You will build and load your special solarigraphy camera “LataCam”, which you will take ready to create your first solar landscapes.No photography knowledge required.

+Participants must bring a desire to learn, experiment, share and have fun.
