Alternative photographic processes have always been a fun and unique way to explore different ways of image creation. From exploring an antique process of photographic days gone by to a side use of more modern technology you'll find the most creative image makers among us constantly exploring new ways of visual expression threw innovative uses of common photographic tools.
Polaroid image lifts can be a fun way of taking instant pictures to the next artistic level. They allow you to add textures, to stretch, distort and manipulate your instant pictures in a way similar to how we alter our digital images in photoshop.
Polaroid transparency layering combines compositional processes similar to painting with photographic tools from the late 20th century. This allows the user to combine multiple images to create conceptual and often surreal images from tools we often relegate to the common snapshot.
This event will focus on both of these non standard uses of Polaroid instant film. Attendees will learn how to execute both techniques to gain better control over their own visual expression. No prior experience with Polaroid film or cameras is necessary. Cameras and film, as well as all other materials, will be provided. What is needed is a flare for the creative and conceptual, as well as an eagerness to learn.
Refund policy: Refunds will be given to all people who change their RSVP to "No" no later than two days prior to the event. Event fees will go towards providing materials for event participants.
