The Latin Photography Festival Red eyes Continue with its wide agenda of activities. Since opening the doors of his exhibitions last September 14, many have been the workshops, talks or events that have been held within this event.
For this weekend, the leisure proposal is highlighted by the pinhole photography workshop for adults in Ca Lambert this next Saturday, October 12. And, after the success in the children's workshop, it is the turn for parents in which they can learn to capture images with a simple can of coffee, recovering the magic of analog photography and development in the dark room.
«The workshop takes place in taking pictures with a simple can of coffee (or any other can), with no objective and nothing more than that, a can», explains the organizer of the festival, Mike Steel and adds that «Photography will be taught without the need for a conventional camera. In a digital world, we consider it basic to be able to go back to the beginning of photography and take wonderful photos with only a metal can. So we will deliver cameras built from cans for each one to take a series of photographs, reveal them and the positive ones ».
The workshop, taught by Lola Barcia and Marinela Forcadell, includes all the material to reveal and positive the images made in the course. Those interested in registering can do so through https://festivalojosrojos.com/iniciacion-a-la-fotografia-estenoepica/. The duration of the course is 4,5 hours in one morning and the cost is 50 euros.
In addition, the Photography Festival, open to the entire region, has another appointment this weekend in Pedreguer with a photographic market. On Sunday 13 of October, starting at 10 hours and until 14 hours, in the Plaza del Doctor Calatayud, known as Els Porxens, the photographers of the region will sell their photos and you can also find second-hand photographic material, books, magazines and anything related to photography.
In this market you can sell, exchange and share photography. In addition, the author will be present and it is he who sells, exposes and explains his work, without intermediaries, which represents an excellent opportunity for interaction between artists and the general public. There will also be stands with photobooks and second-hand photographic material.
