This three-part workshop is about using film cameras as opposed to digital. It includes a two-hour lecture on film photography, an instructor-assisted group photo shoot, and a critique and gallery showing.
What You’ll Learn :
Photography history and background facts
How to correctly load camera, expose film, and rewind film
How to troubleshoot exposures
Some ideas in the cultural and academic conversations about photography
Editing images and critique
This workshop is three sessions:
Session 1: Two hour lecture on photography history, camera mechanics and film exposure. Topics in the cultural conversation of photography are also included.
Session 2: An outdoor, weekend photo shoot with two instructors to assist, hands on. Film will be provided (and the location will either be Sutter's Fort or the Sacramento Capitol park.) Mike's Camera will develop and print all student film, and then students will choose their favorite image to have enlarged for gallery show.
Session 3: The galley reception and critique will take place the following Thursday night from 6:00-8:00pm.
