Today we had a photography workshop focusing on learning to use film cameras.
This was very exciting as working in this way makes you understand all the terms and camera processes much better than with digital. Like what the aperture actually does, and the shutter speed etc. Rather than it just being the name of an option, in comparison. We took this new found knowledge to the streets to see if we could use it at all. Then came the best bit, learning how to actually develop the film yourself, this was really brilliant, and very satisfying. Anyone who is interested in photography at all should do this.
Next week we’ll be in the darkroom and i’ll post the results!
