An introduction to Film Photography workshops - Hosted by Weng Hong

Are you interested in Film Photography? Are you overwhelmed by the sheer amount of cameras and film formats? Do you have questions that you don't know where to ask?

Filmneverdie's friend & film camera expert Weng Hong will be hosting a workshop aimed at people clueless about film photography!

This course aims at introducing the beauty of analogue cameras and film, to those who are interested to start out in this art form. Participants can expect to learn about what types of cameras are out there and the basic operation of these different types of cameras. Participants of this course will have the chance to try out some of the best cameras from different eras and give them an idea on what suits them most.

Film SLR's (Nikon FM2n, Nikon FE2, Nikkormat FTN, Pentax ME, Minolta X700 etc) will be provided for the participants to use in the course.

Popular rangefinders such as the Canon VT Deluxe, Bessa R2 and Yashica 35 will be provided as well.

Popular P&S (Point and Shoot) such as Fuji Tiara, Cosina CX2, LCA+ , Olympus 35 and half frame cameras such as the Olympus PEN and Canon Demi are also available.

This course will provide 1 roll of BW (Ilford HP5) and 1 roll of color negative film (Agfa vista 400) for the participants to shoot in the duration of the course. Processing and Scanning is free of charge for these two rolls, and the images will be sent via email. Negs can be picked up from the FilmNeverDie gallery.
