FILM PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE / WINTER 2018

Sales of photographic film have been steadily rising over the last few years, with professionals and amateurs alike rediscovering the artistic control offered by manual processes and the creative satisfaction of a physical end product.

The question that these findings inevitably raises is why ? Why shoot film, when digital cameras are so advanced ? Film has some qualities that are unique : BW modern emulsion offer a riches of details and tones that are still far far advanced compare to digital, different formats such 5x4" and 10x8' that offer even a greater resolution; color negatives a beauty and tonal warmth that digital cannot match, movie emulsion that offer an un-compromised latitude of exposure. Specific use driven emulsion for infrared photography or ULF and of course all the alternative photographic process. Plenty of tool to boost photographers creativity.

More and more professional photographers are choosing film for similar reasons. This is particularly apparent in the world of fashion, as photographers seek to take back control of the creative process. Indeed, it seems the future role of analogue photography is not to challenge the dominance of digital, but to rest alongside it in a particular niche for creative and fine art photographers.

This course will introduce participants with the practice of analogue photography; from camera handling, shooting and developing film and digital darkroom practice. The course is creative and experimental with assignments that will encourage you to expand and develop your practice.

Participants will learn how by manipulating film, exposition, lights and prints in a variety of different ways so they can produce a series of photography. 

Topics will also include zone system, film technology, scanning and printing, visual presentation.   Students will learn to recognise tones and textures and be expected to produce a set of high quality silver gelatin prints.
