Sunday 02 April
Sanford, Florida - 9am - 2 Hours
Film photography has made a comeback in recent years. Vintage cameras have regained popularity and people are experimenting with the old analog style of photography. Film photography is not without its challenges. Not having a screen on the back means you have to "get it right in camera." This meetup will teach you some of the tools and skills you need to do just that. Grab that old camera and a couple of rolls of your favorite film and let's shoot together.

    It enabled me to better understand night photography. It simplified the process to make it easier to photograph at night. The big thing was the understanding of white balance and its importance for night photography.

    Michael Wacht
    Mike has more than 40 years' experience behind the camera, a good deal of that as a professional. A bulk of his work has been as a photojournalist and documentary photographer. This storytelling style informs his other work as an event, portrait/headshot, and travel photographer. Mike traveled in 2003 to Angola, Africa to document the postwar church, documented relief efforts after the 2004 hurricane season, and shot an outdoor wedding next to a glacier in Alaska. Mike holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Washington & Lee University and a master's in strategic communications from Purdue University. He lives in Orlando with his five rescued dogs.
