The first LoFi photowalk of the summer is almost here – Sunday 10th July.
Meet at 11am at the Gosford Bothy Farm Shop for coffee before we commence our walk.
Time and weather permitting we will continue to Longniddry Bents and somewhere for afternoon tea.
The 19th century façade is the perfect subject to capture with vintage cameras, but there are plenty of opportunities for landscape, waterscape and wildlife too.
Please see the photowalks event page for full details of the day.
Additional photowalks are also planned for the 2nd Sunday of August and September.
Edinburgh has a long history of Salt Prints. Ranging back to the late 1830’s Hill and Adamson used the technique to produce prints using Talbot’s process. One of their subjects was the fishing village of Newhaven.
Last summer Edinburgh LoFi had an Extraordinary Meeting of the Edinburgh Calotype Club at Newhaven, to pay homage to the first photographic society in the world.
Some of the negatives have now been made into Salt Prints and a Japanese bound album has been made to hold them.
Thanks to everyone who made it out today – here is a digital pinhole of the group while we wait for film processing and paper developing!
