11 days - October 27 - November 6, 2019
Analog/Film Photo workshop
In 2019, we want to do something excitingly new, something close to our heart. We decided to launch 4 Analog Adventure Workshops.
Bring plenty of film and share 21 days among people who are equally passionate about analog photography, it’s about enjoying shooting film for our own reasons and sharing that passion with the rest of the group, learning more about film photography and returning home with amazing images.
Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Oaxaca and surroundings, is mysterious on a very different level.
The Day of the Dead celebrations developed from ancient traditions among its pre-Columbian cultures. Rituals celebrating the deaths of ancestors had been observed by these civilizations perhaps for as long as 2,500–3,000 years. The festival developed into the Day of the Dead. The festivities were dedicated to the goddess known as the "Lady of the Dead".
We will start our journey in the city of Oaxaca where we will explore the town and its surroundings. After several days we will move by car to the Sierra Norte where we will stay in small mountain villages celebrating Dia de los Muertos before returning to Oaxaca.
Needles to say that Mexican food is simply delicious)
We’re passionate about teaching the different aspects of photography.
This workshop is suitable as an introduction to shooting film for the dslr user as well as for the experienced film shooter.
We will explain how to become comfortable photographing strangers in unfamiliar environment. You will receive our E-book "For the right reasons”, a breakdown of different situations you may find and how to approach them.
We want you to understand the zone system for better B&W film results, mastering spot and incident metering for better negatives/files.
We discuss the different film stock we use and when we use them and have a presentation on how to deal with different available light situations.
Instead of editing digital images in the evenings we can stay in the moment of enjoying this wonderful country and its’ people.
