Analogue Photography, or should I say film photography seems to be a dying format with digital cameras becoming cheaper and more easer to use each day. But where’s the fun in setting your camera to auto and never really experiencing the fun of old school film. Shooting a roll of 35mm film has become stylish in this hip and trendy world of photography we now live in, and I’d like to take you on a learning curve to show you the thrills of shooting film.
Analogue Photography Film 101
On the day we will meet at a chosen location in London or Reading, depending on the date, to discuss the cameras we will be using, (you will need to provide your own film camera for the day) and how to use them creatively. We will also talk about the technical aspects of film photography, including metering, film sensitivity, depth of field and film fomats. We will provide a roll of film per photographer in 35mm format. We currently stock Fujifilm Pro400H and Provia 400.
Don’t worry if you are new to film photography, we will cover all bases on this course, and by the end of the day you will know how to use a film camera
- Setting ISO overexposing
- Focusing with range finders – Zone focusing
- Pushing film
- Pulling film
- Creativity on the streets
- Developing and the best Labs to use.
We will cover sending your film to UKfilm lab for development and having your images scanned by the lab. The benefit of this is a quicker turnaround, and ending up with a digital image but keeping the outstanding look of film. Even in todays world with all the film presets nothing can come close to actual film.
All the images shown in this gallery have been taken with film, using Ektar 100 and Portra 400 film.
