Basic Bolex H16



In this experimental one-day workshop, you will get an introduction to using the Bolex H-16 Reflex Camera. You’ll explore some key creative features of the Bolex and the standard operation: how to load the camera and how to expose film correctly. We will then take a trip around the nearby Olympic Park with cameras and 100ft each of B&W 16mm film stock.

During the workshop, you will learn:

The film will then be subjected to experimental chemistry by course leader Rhea Storr. Each participant's roll of film will be subjected to four different experimental development processes, 1/4 of the roll for each process. This will allow for comparison between the development results, which will vary.

The workshop fee includes the cost of 100ft of film stock and cost of development, which is subsidised by not/nowhere.
