The film development workshops at Social Media Week Berlin were a huge success. There was a lot of interest in the sessions on using a smartphone to digitize and post negatives, and of course in the workshops on developing film in the darkroom.
If you missed us during SMW Berlin, the next workshop on film development is this Friday, 11 October at 13:00. You can sign up by sending me an email.
Workshops on Film Development
Here’s the kind of thing we were doing. We walked around the neighborhood in Friedrichshain-Berlin for an hour or two with cameras. This photo is shot on a Holga camera, Rollei RPX 400 film. After getting back to the lab, participants were introduced to the lab. The whole process of film development was explained – and then we did it. After a beer pause of waiting for things to wash a dry, we took the negatives out to have a look.
The upper shot is photographed on a smartphone. We laid the negatives flat on a viewing table and photographed them. After that, we could crop and apply filters in-camera to make it a positive image. That is the lower shot – the finished product, ready to be shared, posted, whatever.
