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.
