My Wife (Hannah) and I went to a Analogue Film Workshop run by The Photo Parlour in Derby.
Dan who runs the photo parlour was a great guy, with a passion for film photography, excellent technical knowledge, and a relaxed and friendly demeanour. All those traits combined meant that learning was quick,easy and fun.
It was a great introduction to the world of film photography, here is how the day went.
We started off with a quick tour around the space, I was impressed with how efficient the use of space was, later I found out Dan had built and designed the interior walls and layout himself. Epic.
The space itself is great, the dark room was plenty big enough to fit 5 people in to all learn and do at the same time, without feeling at all cramped. The main area was set up with tables but also pulls double duty as indoor photo studio, complete with black and white backdrops.
The corridor is set up as a nice gallery with some of John Blakemore’s photos on show, complete with tea and coffee making facilities. With proper coffee too.
