IN STUDIO: Film Photo Walk’n Talk
CLASS DATE: Saturday, March 6, 3-6pm
LOCATION: Oil and Cotton Studio and surrounding neighborhood (OUTSIDE)
INSTRUCTOR: Melissa Cunningham
NUMBER OF STUDENTS: We are limiting in person classes to 8 students. Students are required to wear a mask throughout the entire class and adhere to our safety policies.
Dust off those old cameras sitting pretty on the shelf and spend some time getting comfortable with shooting film. This class explores the ins and outs of film photography with 35mm or medium format cameras. The class structure includes a hands-on demonstration including: camera operation, manual controls, loading and unloading film, and troubleshooting issues followed by an outdoor photowalk to practice exposing with natural light, make pictures, and enjoy the fresh air. You will leave feeling more confident shooting with film. This class goes great with a friend (model buddy), a drink (BYO), and walking shoes (you never know where we’ll go).
If you have a camera sitting at home that you’re unsure about, bring it and we can investigate! Make sure to check the battery in your camera before class. We will provide one roll of BW film per participant. Not sure what to do with that film after? We have recommendations.
If you do not have a film camera to use, but are interested in the class, please contact the studio ([email protected]) when registering; we have a limited supply of cameras to lend.
