Spend a day walking on Dartmoor with your camera at hand. We will look at basic camera techniques as we capture the landscape around us.
This workshop is for people who are just beginning to explore film photography and have little prior knowledge of it. Attendees must have a good level of fitness and preferably have their own 35mm or 120 film camera (hire may be available on request.)
Places are limited. Get in touch for more information.
Why film not digital?
While we could use digital cameras on this workshop the element of nature connection (which is an important part) will be lessened. Shooting with film helps you slow down and focus on a precise moment as there are limited frames to one roll of film.
Developing your films after the workshop will give you time to dissimulate your experience. This workshop can also be a way to make and collect for art projects or visual diaries. This could be for painting, sculpture or to just break out of a creative 'block', complete beginners welcome.
This is a chance to spend time away from technology and immerse yourself in the natural world (another reason to use film) therefore I ask you to limit phone use or try and ‘switch off’ for the limited time we are on the Moor.
About your tutor;
Fern is an award winning photographer working predominantly in medium format film. She is a postgraduate of the University of the Arts London. She’s passionate about image making and the natural world, so has devised this workshop to share this passion with other women who want to make connections to the landscape while learning a creative new skill. Fern spent four and a half years living in the woods, off grid on Dartmoor and so has acquired outdoor skills in nature connection which she will happily pass on to participants along the way.
