Did you ever want to learn to make photographs with a film camera? Or do you already shoot film, but want to try out a 'new' analog camera?
If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, this is an event for you.
For this event, CameraMall can lend you one of their analog cameras for the walk (while supplies last!). Bruno, the Analog Guru at CameraMall, and Patrick will help you select a camera and show you how to load, meter, and focus the camera before the walk. After everyone has a camera, we will begin the walk. Getting cameras and buying film from CameraMall may take up to a half an hour or so, which is why the Meetup time is 11:00AM.
During the photowalk, which will likely begin around 11:30AM once everyone has a camera, we will refine our focusing and metering skills as well as practice the art of Contemplative Photography - meaning that we will be intentional and imagine each shot before we take it. After all, with film, we have a limited number of shots. No experience shooting film is required!
After the walk, we'll drop the film off at CameraMall, who will develop one roll of 35mm color film per attendee to CD or prints for free! (your registration fee covers the cost). Film will be available for pick-up, Friday, December 16th.
Please note, CameraMall has film available for purchase, and has the ability to develop 35mm color film. CameraMall cannot develop black and white film. You may also bring your own film camera, if desired.
Here are some film shots of Patrick's from around town (Nichols Arcade and the Law Quad). You can check out more on Instagram at: @morganpt_inkyimages
