During the first part of the day we aim to be out on location on the Dingle Peninsula and begin with a familiarisation session of your manual camera, lens and film. We’ll then explore exposure, lighting, tonal range and the use of filters before passing completely into the abstract world of black and white composition. We’ll explore several different locations and subjects during the morning before heading back to base to learn about and practice the stages of processing before you get to load your film in a developing tank and process it yourself.

We can collect you and your group from your accommodation anywhere on the Dingle Peninsula and begin the workshop or we can meet at an agreed time and place in Dingle. Previous knowledge of using an SLR camera on manual is desirable as there is only a very brief recap on this topic. You should be able to read a camera meter and adjust shutter speed and aperture to obtain a correct exposure. If you’re not totally comfortable with your camera on manual settings, why not take one of our Beginners Workshops which will instruct and demonstrate how to use your camera away from the comfort of auto settings and enable you to gain confidence and begin using absolutely any camera more creatively. For 2019 we are running a Traditional Black & White Film and Darkroom Holiday during May.
