StattLab has moved homes, and the Analog Photography Berlin workshops have moved with it. Yes, it’s sad but true that StattBad Wedding has come to an end. The workshops for analog photography and silkscreen – StattLab – is back and stronger than ever. The new lab is still in Berlin-Wedding, this time at Drontheimer Str. 34. We expect to be here for a long time this time!
And so I am happy to announce the first round of workshops taking place at StattLab.
The 2-part Introduction to Analog Photography workshop will be held tomorrow and next tuesday, June 23rd and 30th from 18:00-23:00. You just need to shoot a roll of black and white film before the workshop. Cost is 50€ per person for both sessions together. More info here.
If that is too short notice for you, there will be a second course on July 21st and 28th, also Tuesdays at 18:00, 50€ per person.
This coming weekend I will also be teaching an introduction to studio portrait lighting, also at StattLab. The course is is Saturday and Sunday June 27th and 28th, from 10:00-19:00. We will start with the basics: Why do we use artificial light? And then roll through the various options, how to set up camera flashes as strobes, which modifiers we use, how to meter light, get various effects. We’ll work through gelling (color / color temperature), mixed lighting and multiple light setups. You won’t become a master in two days, but it’s a great way to dive in. There are still 2 spaces available. Price is 150€ for the whole weekend.
An multi-week intermediate course in analog photography will be coming in August or September – if you are interested, send a smoke signal.
The next round of workshops introducing analog photography and the StattLab community darkroom is set for Wednesday March 11th and 18th at 15:00. In this 2-part workshop, you will learn how to develop film by hand in the darkroom, make contact prints, and of course enlarge photographs.
Bring a roll of exposed black and white film to the first workshop and we will develop it together All workshops are held at StattLab @ StattBad Wedding, Gerichtstr. 65. Cost is 25€ including materials. Sign up by sending an email .
More details on the workshops can be found here.

We are happy to announce the first introduction to black and white analog film photography workshop at our new home at StattLab Wedding, taking place on July 2nd, 2014! The beginning of every month will bring an intro workshop – but that’s no excuse to put it off.
The workshop will begin at 13:00, giving us enough time and sunlight to discuss the basics of exposure and photo composition, load up cameras, and go out and shoot. After a mid-afternoon coffee & döner break we’ll go into the lab and develop the negatives. The workshop cost is 25€ per person, plus 5 for a roll of film (or bring your own). Bring a camera if you have one, otherwise you can use one at the lab.
If you like what you see and learn, you can continue with a weekly workshop learning how to print in the darkroom, what the difference are amongst films, papers, developers, and everything else really. And if you are still interested after a month or two, you can become a member of StattLab for a mere 50€ a month and have access to the darkroom whenever you want. Yes: a real community darkroom in Berlin!
