Pinhole photographer Justin Quinnell has been invited up to the Orkney Islands to teach children how to take 4 month exposures of the Sun moving across the Orkney Sky with pinhole cameras while spending time at the Orkney Islands international Science Festival.
Speaking about his trip, Justin said: "Several years ago I was invited to Darwin in Australia to teach pinhole to students from remote communities. Although Orkney promises to be somewhat cooler I am really looking forward to inspiring children in Orkney and sharing the wonder of pinhole photography and camera obscuras. It still amazes me that by using an empty aluminum beercan you can capture 5 months of time in one image."
Winter days leave us with a shortage of daylight hours for photography but you don't have to venture far to photograph birds during this season, making them a perfect subject choice.
