Film Workshop 2020

Film Workshop 2020






Hi there!

NUSPS is proud to announce our latest, long-awaited Film Workshop and Photowalk! Through this event, we seek to answer a very special question – why shoot film in the digital age? Why, in an age of pocketable convenience and instant gratification do we intentionally use a photographic format that is slower, more difficult and removed from the electronic aids that we are so very used to? This is the question that we are sure you had in mind when you signed up for this workshop, and we shall strive to answer it.

In addition to the above, we will also introduce you to the history of film photography, genesis, if you will. How did photography evolve from its earliest days to the irreplaceable media format that we use today? We will also introduce you to the different types of analog cameras, different film sizes and how that affects the way you shoot, and the photographs that you will produce. There will also be a sharing session by hobbyist film shooters, who will share their analog photography journey. Of course, photography is nothing but a practical medium. As such, we will also instruct you in the basic operations of a film camera, including how to load film properly, how to meter (if applicable), and how to apply the exposure triangle properly on a fully manual camera.

Thereafter, we will transition to the photowalk at Little India, where you will experience analog street photography in its purest form. If you purchased a roll of black & white film from us, you will get a truly analog experience and learn to compose shots with the absence of color in mind, a truly unique experience.

We hope that, by the end of the day, you will gain a deeper understanding of the role of film photography in the modern era, and we hope that we would have kindled your passion to #shootfilm again.
