Black & White Film Course
We think people that say “film is dead” are people that have no insight into the future. Film is most certainly not dead. If you processed your own film, you had to make sure you don't mess up that step. Once you had your developed roll of film, it was now time to make a print and get that just how you saw it in the viewfinder. You have three chances to mess it up, means three times the satisfaction once you get that final print and the outcome is exactly how you expected.
Our course runs over two days at a cost of R3800.00 it is limited to two people.
Day one, we meet at our studio where you are presented with a 35mm film camera, the lens of choice will be the good old standard 50mm, we will be armed with tripods a Gossen Lunasix lightmeter and tripods.A short exercise on the handling of these great cameras and loading of the Black & White film.We travel to a destination of our choice and commence shooting, this will be followed by lunch in the bush, after this great meal we continue shooting.Return to the studio, the excitement is high and we process our film.
