CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
We're wondering how many may be interested in an "old time" film photography club/group.
The difference to the usual photography club is that we are interested in keeping alive the art of film developing, and printing, and of course taking photos with analog cameras. No previous experience necessary. We can all learn together.
We would be keen on hearing from you if you are interested, and especially if you know if a location where we might establish a community dark room. There is funding available for equipment and supplies, sponsored by the Museum group.
