Pinhole Photography Workshop by Scott Morris

  • 17 May 2014 10am-2pm

Focussing on the finer points of photography, this workshop on the pinhole camera will open your eyes to the artistic possibilities of this venerable magic light box. Local photographer Scott Morris will teach you some of the techniques involved and you'll be inspired by our collection of remarkable moments in golfing history captured by the pioneering photographers of old. Then it's up to you - whether you see the world in black and white, or shades of grey, your vision will be saved for prosperity (though this isn't Instagram so we'll send the results on to you at a later date!).
