In this one-day workshop, participants will be introduced to the various components of working with a medium format camera—from settings to loading film and camera optimization. Guided by instructor Morris Lum, participants have the opportunity to work hands-on with their cameras in an outdoor street setting to create unique image.
Participants will need to provide their own medium format camera; film (3-5 rolls) and light meter. If you do not have access to a medium format camera, please contact Gallery 44 as we have some available for use.
Please note: For your safety and the safety of our community, masks are still mandatory for all of our in-person group workshops. Kindly bring a mask with you or one will be provided for you.
