There's been a lot of discussion lately around shooting with film. So beginning September 19th at 7pm and continuing on the third Wednesday of each month there will be a film workshop at Kevin's home. We'll shoot Black and White. We'll also develop the B&W film. If you want to use color film, that's OK it's just that you'll have to send out for developing.
