Description

Remove yourself from the snap happy culture we live in and immerse yourself in the mindful practice of film photography. You’ll learn how to take great photographs without relying on a camera’s automatic function. You’ll discover how shooting with manual settings can give you greater control, and empower you to create more interesting images.  This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced photographers alike.

The only prerequisite for the workshop is that you bring your own camera. We will supply the film for the cameras! All film camera’s are different, have different settings, methods of loading film, etc. so we’ll ask that you let us know what camera you will be bringing with you.

 ABOUT ALANA + KARLY POTTS

Alana and Karly are analogue and digital photographers. Growing up in regional NSW their work is a reflection of their surroundings of their youth – organic, and honest in capturing a natural imagery and those who wander through. The sisters are experimental in process and practice. Self-taught and freelance, they work with a variety of photographic mediums. They explore manual formats including 35mm film photography, engaged by the grainy and raw aesthetic and method, which they find complimentary to their photographic style – having an eye and an appreciation of the Australian landscape and how this translates into people, art and culture.

The girls learnt their way around the manual settings of a film camera before picking up a DSLR which developed a greater respect and understanding for film and a natural and learned transition into digital photography. They collaborated in creating ‘The Wildfolk Collective’ and curated a series of 35mm zines featuring different places and scapes. The most recent series focused on the coastal climates and the hills and hinterland from a high summer at home which later became a solo exhibition, ‘Salty’ at This Must Be The Place in 2016. Their portfolio includes a range of styles and mediums – portrait photography – landscape  photography – editorial photography – photojournalism – music photography – wedding and event photography and creative direction. Their clients include Analogue.Gallery, Creative Mornings Brisbane, National Young Writers Festival, and a series of local publications, artists and events, dappling in mixed media and visual art as complimentary to their visual body of work.
