Photo I (Film Class)

$480.00

Back to the Future – Shooting with a Film Camera

Film cameras are being re-discovered as photographers harken back to the days when one valued every photo on a roll of film.  The nostalgia also enjoys a certain “cool” factor.  Throughout the seven weeks, we will work with 35mm film cameras and teach the basics of photography such as the factors for correct exposure and aspects unique to using film.  Using Kodak Black & White Film, you will learn to develop the negatives and scan them into Lightroom for editing and printing in our digital lab.

PLEASE NOTE:  While attending the 7-week class, you also attend 5 Digital Printing Labs (1 per week, beginning on the second week of class).  Attending the Digital Lab will teach organization, editing, and printing of your digital images.  We offer 6 times during the week to attend lab, you may find the schedule below in the TABS.

Back to the Future – Shooting with a Film Camera

Film cameras are being re-discovered as photographers harken back to the days when one valued every photo on a roll of film.  The nostalgia also enjoys a certain “cool” factor.  Throughout the seven weeks, we will work with 35mm film cameras and teach the basics of photography such as the factors for correct exposure and aspects unique to using film.  Using Kodak Black & White Film, you will learn to develop the negatives and scan them into Lightroom for editing and printing in our digital lab.

In the Lab, you will learn the right way to save your images permanently in digital format.  The computer program we use to manipulate photographs is called Adobe Lightroom. It is a program you can afford, and it is much less complicated than Photoshop (we do not teach Photoshop in either Photo 1 or Photo 2).  There will be at least one teacher for every five students in the lab.
