At the end of camp they will each have their own featured gallery on the CCforP website to show friends and family their work from the week.
Our own Tim Pakron had a chance to chat with artist recently. In this interesting interview Geboy makes the point that it's not about the tools, it's all about the artist using the tools. A better camera will not make you a better photographer. Here is a bit of that conversation:
Now, was this a modified Holga, I know of some that are modified with a glass lens?
No I use a straight Holga that I bought probably 15 years ago. I didn't use it much until about 4 or 5 years ago.
Well to me the negative is just a beginning. It doesn't matter what I shot it with. I don't like the sharp lenses. Mainly because my work isn't geared around being really sharp. I'm not worried about that. I want to spend the least amount of money on the camera. I can manipulate the negative in Photoshop and create a negative the way I want it.
