Night 03 of the MONO NO AWARE residency at Whammy!

Learn how to capture moving macro images on 16mm film using the Bolex camera, lenses, and extension tubes!  We’ll cover everything you need to know in order to measure, calculate and expose properly for capturing images VERY VERY CLOSE UP! Each participant will have hands on experience of working with the camera and the experience of creating macro moving images.   Bring your fruits and veggies, tiny objects and textures to explore through this very special lens.   Participants of this workshop will learn a basic understanding of the camera, then we’ll compose and capture objects in extreme close up onto Kodak’s Vision3 Color Negative film stock.  Covering all aspects of the process we’ll discuss light loss and compensation, how to determine the focal length, and other tips to ensure stunning images. 

Participants will receive hands-on experience, access to all the tools and equipment necessary, supporting documents, fresh film stock and more.  All materials, equipment and lab services are included! 

The fully timed color work print will premiere at a free screening party on Sunday March 3rd at WHAMMY!
