What:Get Started with Film Photography – Get Some Analog Love!

This online class will help students gain the skills and knowledge they will need to make informed camera and film purchases. It will also help to teach students what went wrong with their images and how to learn from their mistakes.

This is a great class for anyone looking to learn more about analog photography or someone who is just stating out. Previous knowledge of photography is definitely a plus, but not a requirement. All students must have their own camera and a budget set aside for film development.

Matthew Novak

In an ever changing digital world it is always important to understand the basics of photography. Not to mention its always fun sending your film off to a lab and waiting in anticipation to see if they turned out well! This class is a great way to leave the digital grind behind.

In addition students will learn tips and tricks about where to purchase film, cameras, and more information about a wide array of film labs in the USA as well as abroad. If you want to be part of the Lomo/film is not dead movement this is a great place to start.
