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.

    I started off in film many, many years ago and taking this class has changed the way I photograph. It was fun to compare my dslr photography to film. I learnt so much and hands down one of the best classes I’ve taken thus far. Gary was patient and very knowledgeable. I loved doing the homework and I was super excited every week to process my film.

    I’m hoping that some day soon, there will be enough of an interest to have a film club at the school. I mentioned this to Gary and for a fee, we can continue to enjoy processing and shooting together. I’m certain that after this class, black and white film is going to be a forever part of my life.

    Thank you Gary for fun times filled with great learning.
