Re-live the days of photography before memory cards and Photoshop. On this course you load a camera with film then go out and explore the local area. You will then process the film and produce a contact sheet from which to select your best images. Time permitting, you may be able to enlarge a favourite image.
Bring your own film camera if you prefer, or we can provide one (manual or fully auto.) No need for much technical expertise, although a knowledge of exposure – apertures and shutter speeds – would be useful, but not essential.)
- The film camera – introduction to types and operation (as required.)
- Processing – chemical mixing, health and safety
- Assessing your negatives
- Making a contact print
- Paper grades – using multigrade filters
- Producing an enlarged print
Maximum group size will be 3*, ensuring an enjoyable, informal day with individual tuition.
Bring lunch (or visit one of the many Humber Street cafes and bars.) Kitchen facilities, including a microwave are available and tea and coffee are provided.
