NEW - A day designed for photographers wanting to learn how to get started in traditional film-based photography. An opportunity to learn about and play over a dozen different iconic and affordable cameras and film formats from 35mm to Hasselblad medium format.

You can even shoot film on various systems to see the results. 

It's a great opportunity to see which system is right for you and to avoid expensive mistakes purchasing the wrong system.  We'll look at different genres from Landscape, portraiture and street photography. 

You'll leave knowing which system is right for you, how to get started and get great results.

The day will begin with our analogue film experts Sam Gregory (Landscapes) and Simon Ellingworth (Street and Portraiture) walking you though the different systems and looking at the advantages and disadvantages of each system.

Both Sam and Simon will discuss how they use analogue film in Landscape, Street and Portraiture with lots of examples from each system.

We will teach you how to light meter using inexpensive phone apps and how to get the most from film photography.

Key Learning Points: - Different types of camera system and their benefits - Film formats and types and which is best for you - How to meter for film photography - How to approach film landscape photography - How to approach film street photography - How to approach film portrait photography - Practical play and shoot to determine which system you love

We’ve partnered up with locally based international analogue film retailer Analogue Wonderland who will talk you though various film options and how to get the best from each. [[ to be confirmed ]]

 You will then have the opportunity to play with all the various system as shoot a few frames each on either a portrait or naturally lit still life set. Or if the weather is good, we may venture out on foot.

After the workshop we will have the film developed and scanned and popped into a gallery so you can see your results and the differences between systems.
