28 BA(Hons) Photography Level 1 Students from University College Falmouth have been teaching 100 primary school children to discover the fun and wonder of old and new photographic processes.

Using the venue of the Count House at the historical National Trust Botallick mines near St Just, the students have been teaching digital camera techniques alongside using pinhole camera and traditional darkroom processes.

The children from Newlyn, St Just and St Hilary primary schools near Lands End in Cornwall were initially taught how to use the automated technology within digital cameras in an innovative and creative way. After that, they used pinhole cameras constructed from beer cans to do time exposures alongside experimental images.

All the students left with a camera which can take a 3-month duration photograph of the Sun.

In the spring the primary school children will be invited to an opening of an exhibition of their images, which will be exhibited at the Gallery at the University College Falmouth.

The workshop was facilitated by technical instructor David Mann and Pinhole photographer Justin Quinnell.
