Plano Holography Workshops
You've seen them in movies and on TV and if you're lucky
you've seen the full 3D effect live. Would you like to learn to make a
hologram of your own?
Contrary what many people think it doesn't take several degrees and a university lab full of equipment to make holograms. Our introductory workshop will show you how you can make holograms with an inexpensive laser, easily purchased film and chemicals in a dark room inside your own house. In fact, our workshops are held in a dark room inside our house.
Making a hologram is much like photographing a still-life. You set up your subject as you want it to appear in your final work, take into consideration the placement and lighting of your scene, shoot the hologram and develop the film just like you would if you had your own photographic darkroom. The final result is a fully 3-dimensional image of the original still-life.
In the workshops you'll learn about lasers, chemistry, optics, glass cutting, film cutting and mounting, scene composition and lighting.
This workshop is intended for those people who are new to lasers and/or holography. You'll be taken through the history of holography all the way to the making of your own hologram to take with you at the end of the workshop. The topics we'll cover are:
Intermediate Holography workshop
If you have taken the Introduction to Holography workshop, the intermediate workshop is the next step where you will have the opportunity spend even more time in the lab making a multi-beam transmission master. The additional beams will give you greater control over the lighting of your scene as well as the final brightness of the hologram. The transmission format will allow much greater scene depth and complexity.
Advanced Holography workshop
The next step is to take the transmission master you made in the Intermediate workshop and use it to create an image-plane transmission or reflection copy of your master hologram. The advantage of making image-plane holograms is that your final hologram will be brighter and you can make the image project out in front of the hologram for a more dramatic 3D effect.
