Film photography offers a unique look, amazing quality and possesses characteristics that you cannot achieve with digital imaging. The popularity of the medium is once again growing and manufacturers are responding by bringing back beloved film types that have been long dormant. However, this type of photography can also be intimidating to get started.

This class is designed for the person who is curious about the unique qualities of film photography and wants to get started shooting film on a 35mm or 120mm camera.

Topics Covered
• How your meter works
• How to load your camera correctly
• How to wind your film correctly

• Different types of film cameras - 35mm, medium format and large format

This course covers a wide range of topics to give a beginning photographer a good overview of the basic terminologies and practical techniques of film photography. It also is a great refresher for those who shot film in the past and want to get back into it.
