Preston Guild 2012

Analog Street Photography at night

This workshop will give you the opportunity to experiment with analog film in low-light situations. You will learn about different ways of responding to low light situations and how to work within the limitations on the camera to produce some great pictures.

Ideally, you should have some understanding of the controls on a film camera, but this is not essential.

You will be experimenting by taking pictures outside in the vicinity of the venue based on a theme you decide during the workshop.

There will be a short introduction to the equipment for practical reasons, but the workshop is about using the cameras and we will talk about lenses and film throughout the day as needed.

Topics we will cover throughout the session are:

Cameras, Lenses, and Film
Holding the camera
Different ways of focussing
Aperture and depth of field
Cameras and film will be provided

Equipment we will use

We will mainly be using FED rangefinder cameras which are completely mechanical. The film we will use on the day will be black & white. This will allow us to process the film quickly during the day so we can see the results of our work.

What you will need

You will be working outside the venue so dress appropriately. If you have a rangefinder camera then you can bring it but this is a beginner’s course. The camera we will be using use are film cameras – no digital.
