Pinhole Workshop at Searchlight Mystery Ranch

A couple months ago, I had the honor of attending a Pinhole camera Workshop with photographer Rene West at Searchlight Mystery Ranch. Here are some scans of my paper negatives. Not too bad for my first time back in the field/darkroom in roughly a decade, but I should not be surprised, as Rene is a wonderful teacher.

Besides this incredibly fun pinhole photography workshop, Rene was out at Searchlight Mystery Ranch for a week or so creating her own body of work as a resident artist. Her work captures the marks of human society and entropic forces of nature found primarily on city walls in a way that is both gritty and ephemeral. To see Rene’s work, visit or follow her on Instagram.
