Thanks to everyone that came out to the meeting last night! Minutes will be out later this week. Lots of things were talked out and one thing that was decided was the workshop/photowalk for this weekend. This Sunday, Feb.20.2011, we will be holding a workshop complete with photowalk starting at Noon. We will be holding the workshop at my studio (25 Gore Ave) with the photowalk happening after around Gastown.
Breaking film is about shooting film and using cameras in a way that was never intended. This includes things like cross processing, flipping film over & shooting though it backwards (redscale), developing film in coffee, polaroids, plastic cameras & the list goes on and on. We will also go through the basics of shooting manual cameras and light meters.
Bring out your film camera, toy camera or polaroid camera & have some fun with us. Don’t have one? That’s OK! We will have some to lend for the day. Film will be supplied at $10 per roll (includes developing so that is really a steal), or you can bring your own.
At our next workshop (date TBD) we’ll meet in the darkroom and start to print out the images we’re taking on our photowalks.
For Sunday we will most likely end up at a Pub or coffee shop for socializing after. Send me an RVSP email or comment here so we can ensure that we have a enough cameras/film etc. Spread it about the building and we will see you all on Sunday!
