Mobile Darkroom on the Road

This weekend, the Knoxville Community Darkroom visited the UT annual fall Plant Sale. 

For the event, we hauled the Mobile Darkroom/Camera Obscura and set up a booth demonstrating botanical lumen prints with both cuttings from the botanical gardens, and plants purchased from the sale. 

Several youngsters participated in creating lumen prints to take home.  It was a perfect event for this process.

Meanwhile, in the parking lot, KCD board member Donna Moore greeted visitors while using the mobile darkroom to expose pinholes...

There was a treasure of botanical materials to work from in creating lumen prints.  Below you can see prints made from butterfly bush cuttings and hydrangias.

Joy from the Native Plant Rescue Squad contributed some of her materials, native Yarrow, along with root balls gathered near by at the botanical gardens to create this amazing print.
