EN – Workshop I / Analog Impressions

The Camera and Attention to Observation

Photographing analog. This is a totally different experience. 

Something catches your sight and you take a picture. What do you look at? What do you see in it?
Learn how to see the way your camera does and learn how to help your camera capture what is in your eyes. Learning analog photography means taking the time for this.

In this special workshop we will look into the basics of using the analog camera and put theory to practice by photographing indoors and/or outdoors. Alongside the development of technical knowledge and skill, we will focus on paying special attention to how we observe our surroundings

This workshop, divided into two parts, is conceived to give you a rounded and whole experience.
You can also book any one of the parts separately.
Take a look at the contents and contact me if you’d like some consultation as to which fits best for you.
If you booked the early version of this workshop (before June 2022), click here for the description.

In the first workshop part you will:

  • get a brief overview of different analog camera & lens types
  • understand the analog camera and its functions, from the aperture to the mirror lock
  • learn about exposure and how to make a correct exposure
  • become familiar with the black & white silver gelatin film
  • find out about different film types and their intended uses
  • begin to pay attention to what you see when you look

In the second workshop part you will:

  • practice mindfully noticing what you see and deepen your observation skills
  • begin to think about your surroundings in terms of black & white (…and gray)
  • learn about the aspects that make your photographs what you want them to be, such as:
  • depth of field
  • light, shadow & contrast
  • composition
