Learn the basics of still photography using a film camera. Photography fundamentals such as film selection, shutter speed, aperture and ISO will be covered. We will also review camera choices from 35mm to medium format, where to process film, film scanning options and a demonstration of working with scanned images in Photoshop. Darkroom topics such as developing your own black-and-white film and making your own prints will be discussed. No prior photography experience required. If you have a film camera, you are welcome to bring it to class.

There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. Lunch is not provided.
