Pinhole photography/ camera obscura. Diane Stoppard will talk about her long passion with pinhole photography/camera obscura.

Diane, along with architect Felicity Christian and sculptor Trish Clarke have been spearheading an 8 metre steel camera-obscura sculpture project for Whangarei over the past year, which is the cover story of the current Photographers Mail.

This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear first hand about the project and to get a general overview of this crafty art form, that is pinhole photography.

Auckland Museum Archival Photographers Andrew Hales and Dave Sanderson.

Auckland War Memorial Museum is on a 20 year journey of transformational change, committed to doing business onsite, offsite and online.

As part of this journey, the museum is busy digitising its collections and making them available to view online. Enabling this work is a team of photographers in a world class studio. The studio has photographed 14,000 objects generating 50,000 images since it opened in Nov 2015. The majority of the images produced are made available under a Creative Commons Licence through the museum's website. Collections Online.

Photographer Andrew Hales will talk about what is involved in working on such a project, how the studio operates, what tools are used and the processes behind this image creation. Dave Sanderson, the Project Collection Imaging leader, will give a brief overview of the project and a summary of how the project is developing a digital archiving practice within the museum, keeping our digital collections safe now and for the future.

Mix and mingle starts from 6.30pm.
