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

  • Bushwick Community Darkroom 110 Troutman Street Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

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.
