Cleveland Print Room celebrates Worldwide Pinhole Day

Today was our fourth annual celebration of Worldwide Pinhole Day (see the official website here: pinholeday.org), and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for it! Our workshop group, many of whom had never even seen the inside of a darkroom before, made their own cameras and came up with lots of great photos, which will be shared with the Worldwide Pinhole Day website, all while having lots of fun and learning a thing or two about photography. See the wonderful results below!
