Never shot film? Interested to give it a go? This half day introductory workshop is for you. Camera Basics In this comprehensive workshop we’ll show you how to use a 35mm film camera-how to load the film, basic settings(aperture, shutter speed, manual focus, iso, etc) to control your camera and get the shots you’re after. We provide each participant with a film camera for the duration of the workshop, but feel free to bring your own of course. Photography After an introduction to how your camera works, and loading them up with Black and White film, we’ll go outside to explore and photograph in the area nearby. Film Developing When we’re done shooting, we’ll come back to the workspace and show you how develop your own film. It’s very satisfying to walk away with your first, hand developed roll.
