Learn all of the features and functions of toy cameras, which include Holgas, Dianas, and Lomos. This workshop will cover the basics of each camera's function, techniques for shooting, and how to modify toy cameras to better suit your needs. Students will have the opportunity to photograph with black and white film, learn how to develop it, and from there, learn how to scan it in order to create digital files for both printing and web.
