Black and White Film Day

Experience the dark arts and visual alchemy of black & white film photography

Individual and small private group workshops, designed and planned especially for you.

Black and White Film Day

Duration 7-8 hrs €125

Starting from €62 per person when you take advantage of our excellent group rates

Step into another dimension and experience the dark arts and visual alchemy of black & white film photography. Everything you require for the workshop is included on the day. Every participant is given a Minolta 35mm manual camera with lens and film to use for the duration of the workshop and there’s a ready supply of filters, tripods and other accessories.

  • Familiarisation session of a manual SLR camera
  • Film, ISO and loading the film in the camera
  • Metering & exposure techniques
  • Tonal range, contrast & grain
  • Filters for black and white photography
  • Composition in black and white photography
  • Develop your film by hand
  • You choose the size of your group, from 1 to a maximum of 7
  • All locations easily accessible from the minibus with no strenuous walking or climbing
  • Absolutely everything you need is included in the cost

During the first part of the session 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 a number of different locations and subjects during the day 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 for real.

Previous knowledge of using an SLR camera on manual is necessary 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 comfortable with your camera on manual settings, why not take our “Beginning to see the light” workshop 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 any camera more creatively.

For 2018 we are running a Traditional Black & White Film and Darkroom Holiday during May and our Traditional Black and White Film and Darkroom Weekend is available for small groups from April to September.

Please check the Workshop Information page for everything else.

I'm Interested in the Black & White Film Photography Workshop!
