Brendan Barry & His Shed Camera

Brendan reached out via Instagram to mention that he had converted his shed into a camera. This is super cool. I’m obsessed with shed-based cameras so I had to give it a watch and you should too.

I’ve just made a new video about the camera and darkroom I have built out of/in my shed. In it I talk through the build and operation of the camera, bring together a number of the processes I experiment with and shares some of the materials and approaches I use in my practice – RA4 colour reversal, B&W paper negs contacted to positives and shooting with direct positive paper, both with normal chemistry and with caffenol.

It is a pretty sweet video and the sound the shutter makes is the sound I wish all of my cameras would make when taking a picture.
