Shooting 35MM Hi-con film & Cross processing as fine grain slide

Learn to shoot Black & White 35mm Hi-con Motion Picture Film as still film and cross process as reversal to create absolutely beautiful fine grain B/W slides! Bushwick Community Darkroom hosts Mono No Aware for this special offering which is a 6 hour workshop, that includes a roll that we'll shoot as a group, a roll for each participant to shoot and process at the wet-lab, plus an additional roll to take home and shoot at a later date! 

We'll work as a group to shoot a roll of this HI-CON film to better understand its limitations and its possibilities as a still camera stock. Curriculum will cover the basics of ordering, spooling down and shooting on ESTAR film stocks, how to expose properly and how to cross-process the film as a positive image. With your own camera you'll shoot and process a roll in the workshop then, we will go over key chemical reactions, how to mix our own B/W reversal chemistry and process the film. Additionally, each student will take home an additional roll of this film to shoot and process at a later date! Bring your own 35mm still camera, then all film stock, canisters, chemicals and related equipment will be provided for.

"A Void, Reality" Opening Reception

Photographs by BCD Member Amira Wedeman

 

A Void, Reality explores the invisible battles we all face, often quietly and alone, hidden only by our human skin. It explores a disjointed reality fumbling around trying to make sense of this world, wearing a casing to keep our souls from escaping.

We live many lives in this reality, the ones we show everyone else and the ones we hide from everyone else.

In this exhibit Amira plays with multiple exposure, perception, geometry and shapes to distort bodies to portray a world of disorientation and alienation.

We hope you will join us from 6:30-9:30pm on Friday September 7th for a reception with the artist.

Paulie is our landlord and Punch is the lady that sits outside Castle Braid & gives you candy if you let her punch you. She's either named Maria or Elena depending on who you talk to when and she's super excited that we're having a show in her honor. 

We've pulled together a collection of portraits of Maria/Elena the "punch lady" and have invited her and all of you to join us for an evening of celebration of the characters in our lives.

Cold Comforts: A Narrated Slideshow

Samuel Lang Budin presents "Cold Comforts," a narrated slide show.

“Cold Comforts” is a triple travelog, which details the following:

-The artists's voyage of self-discovery (abortive) around the Pacific Northwest in 2014.
-The artist's family’s various, desperate attempts (historical) to outrun and escape themselves.
-The artist's grandmother’s long, slow, descending road through senility and toward death.

It is of pertinent interest to everyone who has ever encountered: personal shame, identity conflicts, Megabus, Boltbus, the Watcom County Transit Authority Bus, dementia.

Members/Volunteers ONLY BBQ

Members/Volunteers ONLY BBQ

We've done a few Member/Volunteer "mixer"/pizza parties in the past and they were always lovely and super chill. It's been a couple years since we've done one now and members have come and gone and met each other and not. We would love to provide an opportunity for members & volunteers to meet each other & just chill & not worry about attending to customer needs for a minute.

Also the backyard is getting nicer & nicer and though it's not complete or as nice as it will be it still seems worth taking advantage of. So we'll set up a grill & throw some things on it & get some beers & keep the fire going for the afternoon. 

You're welcome to bring whatever you want to throw on the grill or add to the party. We'll probably have hotdogs & burgers and maybe drumsticks and probably some sort of salad & chips. 

Come hang out and have a chill summer Sunday afternoon and meet those people you only know on Slack IRL. We're all pretty nice most of the time I swear.

If you are not currently a member but are considering joining you can register for our next Member Orientation Here and be welcome to meet and mingle before you commit.

Opening Reception "Remnants: intimate moments" Photographs by Cassie Reeder

Remnants: intimate moments

Cassie Reeder’s work is one that begs of the viewer a state of presence. The work predominately showcases humans in their rawest form ; nude. Works capture direct eye contact and candid moments in a manner that may be considered intense or jarring to some viewers. Their goal is to create a space in which human forms may be viewed and studied as living beings caught in a fraction of existence without a preceding notion of sexualization of the body.
