Cornwall: Introduction to Film Photography Workshop | 22nd April 2019

A photography workshop where we will explore the use of vintage film cameras out in the field.

If you are familiar with my work, you will know my love of shooting film on vintage cameras is an enormous passion of mine, over the years I have experimented with many cameras and my personal style to arrive at the place I am happy with today.

During the workshop we’ll learn all about the process of shooting film and making every one those precious slides count, personally I think if you haven’t shot film before it’s a great way to hone your composition skills before you go back to your digital setup.

Group size limited to four including myself.

Once you have purchased the workshop I will invite you to a private Facebook group, specifically for the members of this workshop.

ON THE DAY:

We will meet at the Watergate Bay Hotel at 9.00am for an early morning drink and a chance to get to know each other before heading the short drive down the road to shoot off of Pentire Headland. Following the Headland shoot we will head to Fistral Beach to photography the surf before our final shoot destination - Back at Watergate Bay, a large open beach that picks up plenty of swell that at times, and a personal favourite of mine to shoot.

The workshop will conclude late afternoon/early evening.

TOPICS COVERED:

About the camera
Loading film
Composition
Shooting modes
Exposure
Photographic techniques and best practices

DETAILS:

By keeping the group size down to four, it means we can focus on the tuition and bounce off each other, additionally I can cover the transport to and from our photography locations.

Once you have purchased the workshop I will invite you to a private Facebook group, specifically for the members of this workshop so we can keep in touch and make further plans during the two days.

There will definitely be walking on coastal paths and the likelihood of it being muddy and windy is high, but we will not walk more than 45mins in a single stretch, plus there is plenty of opportunity to stop and catch a breather or/and nail that shot.

If you have any questions please email me and I will try and answer them.
