Film Developing in a Darkroom
Do you miss photography with film? This is the event to get reacquainted or introduced to film photography. Watch this video: And another video proving film is the rage: This is a BYOF&C event - Bring Your Own Film & Camera to shoot some pictures with BLACK AND WHITE FILM!! then develop it in a darkroom. No film camera or film? NO PROBLEM! Come and learn what it's all about by watching, asking questions and seeing the magic as it happens. Why I shoot with Black & White film: • Makes you slow down • More of a process • More careful about each image because it cost money • Rely more on composition, textures and shapes • More about lighting and contrast – lower dynamic range • Forces you to see things differently thereby making you more creative • Pay attention to quality of light, quantity and direction • Accentuates shape, form, pattern and texture • No screen to chimp, get it right at the shoot or don’t get it • No editing in camera, just shooting • Happy accidents can’t be repeated. Expired film, light leaks, film stock differences, developing variables The process of creating images with film will reignite the sense of wonder and excitement that has been dulled by instant gratification of digital photography. Attendance will be limited to 10 participants. Please be mindful of this when you RSVP. Please note: film developing involves using chemicals that may irritate your skin. A waiver must be signed when you arrive if you plan to participate. A $5 voluntary contribution is requested to help support the cost of organizing this group. You can contribute what you wish in cash at the Meetup.
