Craig Fouché Photography in association with Graham Abbott of The Studio Barn – Barrydale proudly presents Film Photography One-on-One Photography Workshop on an exclusive one day or weekend workshop to help you conquer your fears regarding shooting film. We will teach you all that is needed for you to capture the look and feel you’re trying to achieve without presets and filters in Photoshop or Lightroom. Here we go absolutely analogue, by slowing down, going back to basics, focusing on what you have in camera and taking the best photo possible. To achieve this we will focus on photography’s roots – film.
The different size formats are as follows 35mm, medium format also called 120, 220 and 645, large format and ultra large format. Graham and I will teach you one of the three formats of film that we shoot, that is 35mm, 120 and 4×5″ large format. Depending on what format you are wanting to learn, this will also affect the cost involved. Film medium prices vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, and size format too.
We will provide you 2 rolls of either colour, or 1 colour and black and white film in either 35mm or 120 – medium format, 10 sheets 4×5″ in either colour or black and white film. Should you require more film, the price will be affected by that. In 35mm, there are 36 frames per roll, 120 – 12 frames or more depending on the medium format system you are using per roll, and large format uses sheets which need to be loaded in a darkroom or changing bag.
Step one is where we will go in-depth into getting started with film, which film works for you, how to meter light, and how to work with a lab when processing your images. You will also learn just how forgiving film can be when it comes to exposure.
Step two is where you will also learn how to develop your film by hand and wait with bated breath to see if you all your images came out or not.
Step three is where we will take you through the printing process in the darkroom and you can watch your images come to life before your very eyes!
We will be shooting outdoors as well as in the studio, Graham has a large purpose built studio for both models and product photography. I have a much smaller home studio in Worcester.
