T18. GIVE ME FIRE?
Thermal Chemigram

4 HOURS 

Thermal paper, also known as "chemical paper" or "thermal roll" is a special type of heat-reactive paper, and is printed using the "direct thermal printing" method. This means thatIt is printed thanks to heat, without ink.
At the beginning of the workshop   we will see some work done with a thermal camera, mine or that of other people who are using this technique. During the first part  we will be taking photos with thermal cameras and we will learn different creative ways to use them such as super multi-exposure. These photos will be used later during the workshop to manipulate them with different techniques.
Once in the workshop we can use the previous images, we can print other images that you bring on your mobile with a thermal printer that I have and we can create our own images from scratch on white or black ticket papers. We will also see how to create larger images from different tickets.
At the end of the workshop we will createa mural  giantwith strips of thermal paper with the  techniques seen previously

Materials to bring:
- Photographic files on the mobile that will be printed with the thermal printer.
- APP Paperang on mobile

 

T72. THIS IS NOT A PUMPKIN:
Pinhole and home developed

8 HOURS

This is a workshop carried out by Javier Piñana and in which JBCunillera collaborated in the first session. The creative madness of Javi Pi with the technical collaboration of JBCunillera.We will build pinhole cameras with organic elements such as pumpkins or eggs and cameras for solarigraphy with discarded boxes and containers. Workshop with a clearly ecological messagebuilding cameras and revealing with your waste, mixing techniques such as pinhole and solarigraphy.

Session 1
Learn and build two pinhole photography cameras in which at least one of them will be special for solarigraphy, reconverting the disused materials and objects that you have brought. With a clearly ecological message. We will also build a chamber with some organic and ephemeral element such as pumpkins and eggs. We will see a little theory of pinhole photography and solarigraphy in general. We will talk about the main characteristics that these cameras must have and how to achieve them with special emphasis and practicing the construction of pinholes, a crucial part of our camera. Learn and load cameras with photosensitive paper under red light. In this first part we will also begin to make the developer that we will do with organic waste. Plants, flowers, some seasonal fruit or vegetable.

session 2
We will finish preparing the developer and the rest of the necessary chemicals. We recharge the cameras and we will go out into the streets to shoot with our cameras. We will take a dark bag to be able to change the paper of the camera without having to go back to a dark room. After an hour and a half we will return to the laboratory and reveal the work done.
As documentation we will bring a couple of compact cameras with film that any of the participants can use. We will develop this film with the organic and ecological developer.

No previous experience is required.
For the cameras you can bring boxes, jars or any container that can be converted into a camera. It is not essential but it is better to bring the box, jar or cans painted matte black on the inside. 
To make developer you can bring flowers, plants, vegetables, expired food. We will improvise a developer with what the students themselves bring.

T19. Unexplored Pinhole
and Obscura Experimentation

4 HOURS

In this workshop, Justin will explore four of the less well-known techniques of pinhole photography and camera obscura experimentation, and potentially discover some never applied before!The techniques will combine current day digital image capture from phones and DSLR cameras with the historical approaches of pinhole and camera obscuras.
All attendees will make their own 'Abelardo phone obscura', as well as encountering the good, the bad and the ugly of DSLR pinhole, its use with electronic flash and the untapped chaos of pinhole video! All attendees must feel comfortable wandering around Barcelona with odd looking cardboard boxes!

Participants must bring: 

- 2 x 35mm films, (or 1 x 35mm film and an old 35mm cartridge), black 35mm film pot or matchbox,

- Body cap for DSLR, DSLR camera (if they have one)

T1. SOLARIPES:
A selfie with the sun

4 HOURS

In the first session of this advanced workshop we are going to mix “classic” pinholes with solarigraphs. In this way we can make double exposures and add self-portraits or portraits to the sun rays. In addition, it is a very clear and practical way to understand the differences between conventional pinholes and solarigraphs. Basic prior knowledge is required for this workshop, however, it is not exclusive.
First part of the workshop –theoretical part
Before starting with the theoretical part, we are going to paint the inside of the cans and boxes. While they dry we will advance with the theory: differences between pinholes and solarigraphs, how to handle each one, some reference photos, tips and advice so that pinholes can be correctly combined with solarigraphs.

Second part of the workshop –Practical part
Assembly of solarigraphic and pinhole cameras. We will calculate the exposure time of the cameras according to the size of the cameras and the weather.
Once ready we go to the DARK ROOM and load them with photosensitive paper.

Third part of the workshop –Exposure and revealed
We go for a walk around and do the exposures with the pinhole cameras.
The idea, once each participant has their own portrait(s) made, is that they can make new ones and exchange them with the other participants, or take one together, so it becomes an activity. collaborative.

Fourth part of the workshop –Assembly of solarigraphic cameras
We take the pinhole photos and put them inside the solarigraphic cameras and finish closing them.
We'll look at some negatives and talk about how to proceed with post production.

They must have knowledge about the classic pinhole and for the workshop they must bring:

- 3 or more empty, clean and dry cans of beer, soda or energy drink.

T38. SOLARLUDOGRAPHY:
An Expedition on Suntrails, Lumen and Double Exposure

4 HOURS

Theory on both techniques
- Before we even start with the theory, we are going to paint the cans with the spray, so they are completely dry at the end of the workshop.
CONTENT ON SOLARIGRAPHY PART:
- Differences with classical pinholes.
- Why these differences make it easier to mix with other techniques.
- Explanation on how the photosensitive paper works inside the can and how it will work with slides or other objects.

CONTENT ON SLIDES AND LUMEN PART:
- How to choose the right pictures for these slides.
- Different effects according to how we print the slides. Negative or positive?
- How to place the slide with the paper inside the can to get amazing results.
- Other possibilities inside the lumen print technique.

CONTENT OF DOUBLE EXPOSURE PART:Basic tips & tricks on double & multiple exposure, including:
- One technique, two methods
- Courage & effort
- Double the ISO half the light
- Signs & winding back
- Contrast & composition
- Add ons (x-pro, effect-filters, splitzer-doubles, in-camera-masks, around an axis, film swaps etc.)
-
Second part of the workshop -GO OUTSIDE AND LUMEN ALL AROUND
- Preparation for the lumen process: put together photographic paper & slides, place it well in frames and enjoy the session outside where the sun will do the work. This first part will be done individually so we can talk about the exposure time and see some instant results.
- After each person has some exposed papers with their pictures, the game begins :D :D . The participants will have to exchange the slides with their pictures so they will create a SLIDE/LUMEN SWAP. Additionally, they can have different slides of different participants and create double exposures on only one paper. The possibilities are infinite.
- Last part of the workshop - We check the results and build the solarludo cameras
- We check the results, differences between papers exposed with 2 slides or 1.
- Two options: first doing lumen and then placing it inside the can or putting the paper+slide inside the can. Things to take into consideration for each option.
- Building the solarigraphic cams, the idea is that each person builds more than 3 cameras.
- Talk about the post-processing of the negatives.

Each participant should bring:

- They should have some kind of knowledge about pinhole.

- They should bring AT LEAST 4 empty and dry beer, soda, energizer cans.

- They should bring at least 4 of their pictures printed in POSITIVE SLIDES. As in most of the places these slides come in A4 size, they can put 4 pictures in each of these, so the final size of each picture is adequate for the solarigraphy camera. They can contact me by email and I will explain to them how to do it (kumeinn@gmail.com) or we can talk about this when we are closer to the festival.
