[Saturday 4/14 @ 1pm] – Pinhole Photography with the Diana F+
In celebration of World Pinhole Month we present a special Diana F+ pinhole workshop. Learn how this low tech approach to photography can create stunning images that conventional cameras cannot.

[Wednesday 4/18 @ 7pm] – Long Exposures with La Sardina
We will head out into darkness and show you simple techniques for long exposure photos that will bring the NYC night to life!
