A beginner’s guide to everything you need to know about film photography!

About this event:

The class is part of the FAR Photo Workshop Series, a monthly series covering different topics.

All types of beginner film photographers are welcome, including folks with point and shoots who are wanting to learn more. Participants will learn and understand the basic principles of film photography including camera types, 35mm versus medium format, film stocks, development and scanning. Local photographer Garrett Ann Walters will demonstrate and discuss various techniques in a welcoming and interactive environment. There will be an opportunity to direct and photograph a still life or model - and get your camera mechanics questions answered! Local photographer Brick Daniel Kyle will be on hand to assist the workshop.

It is encouraged to bring your own film camera to use if you have one; but not required. It is also encouraged to get a roll of film from our local art store, Griffy Art Supply, if you don't have any currently.
