• Analogue camera workshop

    Analogue camera

The Magic of the Past

Analogue camera’s art and magic, impressing moments and lasting emotions through the film.

This course is for people who love photo’s lights and contrasts and want to understand its procedures, how to take a photo and transform it into something that can be touched and framed. Previous knowledge is not necessary. The workshop will be divided into theoretical, outdoor practice and lab experience. There will be workgroups, constantly supervised by the teacher, who will help the students creating their own personal projects.

Don’t worry! If you do not have your own analogue camera, you will use one of the teacher’s cameras. A deposit for any possible damage will be required.


Six meetings, usually on Saturdays



(The amount includes workshop and lab rent where students can develop their works).
