Book a Workshop, one to one tuition

01st February 2010
New Film and Contrast Grading work shop.

I was born and bred in the wet darkroom era and worked for many years in that environment, until around 8 years ago I went fully digital. Many files and prints later the lure of film has drawn me back to this time honoured and wonderful medium.

I believe there are many people who would love to try the "film experience", its strange how some people try to emulate the look of film in digital, why do that when you can shoot film.

In this high tech world many might feel that using film is stepping backwards, believe me when I say it's not, if anything it is a massive step forward in the production of wonderful prints, film is the authentic medium and has been for many decades. Film cameras never age in reality as they are just a means to an end, film and chemicals are the key to the process, the wonderful tonal curve of film, especially in the highlight values which can be adjusted in development is what makes it special, so when you see an image captured with film and the resultant print has that "film" look compared to digital, what you are seeing is its enormous dynamic range, wonderful tonal transition plus an organic feel and look that at this moment in time Digital capture cannot compete, So for serious fine art black and white photography large and medium format film capture is still king. The approach of the workshop is to show how simple the whole process really is and take all the mystery out of it.
