Film Photography Workshops – MelbourneTopics covered include manual film photography, film developing and black and white darkroom printing. You’ll learn how to take great photographs without relying on a camera’s automatic function.

You’ll create your own unique darkroom prints, and learn how images can be manipulated without using software.The Fox Darkroom’s film photography workshops are suitable for beginners and experienced photographers alike. If you are a beginner, or a digital photographer who doesn’t shoot film, we suggest starting with “Film Photography & Developing Basics”.
