Learn photography with 35mm Film

With digital photography you can immediately see what you shoot. This means you can just fire away randomly until you get it right. Do this with film and it will cost you a fortune!

By learning photography basics with film you will quickly  gain enough confidence to photograph with out the urge to chimp. You will shoot less but end up with many more good photos.

Film cameras are simple yet well engineered machines. Learn how to load a film roll  followed by choosing the suitable settings for the film, available light and subject in front of you. Learn  aperture, shutter speeds and lenses based on the equipment you own.

We start off by having a chat about your reasons  to shoot film, what photography knowledge you have and the camera you will be using. This is done when you book the workshop.

The workshop is 4 hours long and split in two parts.

First Part: 2 hrs.

This time will be dedicated to learning your camera and films, aperture, shutter speed and light metering for film, also based on the equipment you own, so that you can go out to shoot the two complimentary films. I highly recommend you shoot either street or land scrapes for this workshop. Subjects such as portraits, macro and fashion require a deeper photography knowledge that is not covered in this workshop.

You can shoot these rolls over any period but the quicker you do so  the quicker you get to start enjoying film photography.

After you shoot them both, hand them in for developing and you will receive high res tiff files to view at your own time.

Second Part: 2 hrs.

We will go through both rolls and discuss them in detail. We will check exposure, composition and what could be done to improve each shot. We will also check for problems with your equipment and have an open discussion. This session can be done in person or via Skype.
